This week, we begin by celebrating the Dodgers first World Series Championship since 1988, a 4-2 series win against the Rays that came in a 3-1 victory Tuesday. From there, we discuss the controversy surrounding Justin Turner’s positive COVID-19 test during Game 6 of the World Series, where Turner not only played with a positive diagnosis, but celebrated with the Dodgers on the field following their victory. To wrap up, we look at Tony LaRussa’s surprising hire by the White Sox, AJ Hinch’s return to baseball as manager of the Tigers, Steve Cohen’s approval as the new owner of the Mets, and early hot stove news.
