The most remarkable thing that happened during the Red Sox’ five-game walloping of the Astros wasn’t David Price finally winning a playoff start. Baseball writers, who usually spend the month of October romanticizing America’s (former) Pastime, turned against their own sport. Baseball's biggest...

It sure was a shame to see Roberto Osuna melt down Tuesday. The Astros closer, who served a 75-game suspension for domestic violence earlier this season, hit Brock Holt and Mitch Moreland with fastballs to load the bases before serving up a grand-slam to Jackie Bradley Jr. There could be much more...
