Tonight the World Series begins in Kansas City, as the hometown Royals take on the New York Mets in Game 1 of the Fall Classic.
This week baseball takes center stage with two regional covers.
The defending American League Champion Royals have Lorenzo Cain on the cover.
"Yes We Cain," by Senior SI writer Tom Verducci.
The National League Champion Mets are represented on their regional cover by NLCS MVP Daniel Murphy.
"The Amazin' MURPH," by SI writer Ben Reiter.
I love the fact that SI is featuring baseball on its regional covers as the World Series starts.
The playoffs, er, postseason, has produced terrific baseball games, starting with the Wild Card victories by the Cubs and Astros.
My pick for the final best of 7 games of the World Series is the Mets in 5...yes, mostly a pick for former Detroit Tigers Curtis Granderson and Yoenis Cespedes.
Enjoy the World Series baseball fans...no matter who you root, have a great time... PLAY BALL!
