The season is over and the Red Sox are champions. Tom, Ben, and Darius discuss the World Series, including how we were still wrong about Boston even though they won, and whether Alex Cora and his gut reactions really beat the analytical moves of Dave Roberts. They then kickstart the offseason by breaking down the free agency cases of Manny Machado and Bryce Harper, before Tom makes Darius and Ben decide whether they would sign any of the oldest free agents in an ill-conceived game. Listener questions follow, including Halloween-themed questions about players who are always a nightmare for your team, resurrecting dead MLB stars, and filling out a lineup based on classic costumes.
