Instead, he offered words backed…

Monday, October 30, 2017

HOUSTON — Ruth and Gehrig. Mantle and Maris. Ramirez and Ortiz. Altuve and Correa? Maybe it’s just the fatigue kicking in after a crazy-long and just plain crazy night at Minute Maid Park. But is there any other middle-of-the-lineup combination in baseball you’d rather have right now — and in whose future you’d invest — than the Astros’ Jose Altuve and Carlos Correa?

“Love is the most important thing in the world, but baseball is pretty good, too,” Yogi Berra once quipped. As the leaves change colors, the air becomes crisp, and the Dodgers and Astros prepare for a critical Game 5, I can’t help but agree with Yogi.
