Nope.  This is the first ws in which visitors won the first 6 games.

If the Nats can pull off the upset tonight, they will make history then

And the Nats have done it.  For the first time ever, they have won a World Series and for the first time ever, the road team has won every game in the series.

What an incredibly enjoyable World Series that was. Even though neither team was technically "My Team" (Go Padres!!), cheering for Trea Turner and Strasburg to get their rings was the next best thing.

My favorite part of the series is the oddity that nobody won a home game.

Great pitching travels well...

Imagine the Astros fans.  Up 3-2 with the next two games at home and they blow them both.   That's gotta fucking hurt.

I'm still chuckling over the fact that Juan Soto lives with his parents and drank his first beer ever Wednesday night to celebrate

Bizarre series, but it also erases Altuve's pennant clinching HR. Like with Boone in 2003, you don't look back on it as fondly when you didn't win the World Series.

Vegas had 10,000 to 1 odds on the road team winning every game in the World Series.   I'd love to borrow Doc Brown's time machine, go back to a couple days before the World Series, and lay $1,000 on that.

Seriously?  Assuming the home and away team each have a 50-50 shot of winning that should happen once in every 128 years.  Even if the home team has a .55 to .45 advantage the odds are only 1 in 268.  No way it should pay that much.

Yankees were legitimately the scrappy underdogs this season. Setting records for players on the IL as well as games lost to the IL. Obviously, payroll lost to the IL as well. Combine all of that with their shithead owners deciding to pocket more profits instead of reinvesting into the team and it's a Disney movie.......with a $220 Million payroll.

Nothing matters when you don't win the last game of the season. 

Congrats, Nats.

I know, the whole 2001 playoff run to me is tainted because of this. So many great moments and comebacks and it was wasted. I imagine the Patriots feel the same about 2007 and their perfect season.

  Probably the most disappointing game I've watched live....that year was a DOUBLE kick in the dick for me.....Devils/Avalanche Game 7 :-(
