MLB postponed ALCS Game 4 and it is now scheduled for later today. The day off will affect how the teams adjust their rotation and will probably put off an Astros bullpen game to at least Game 6, if necessary.
Meanwhile, there have been plenty of stories of how long it has been since Washington DC hosted a World Series game. Here’s another story and if you are wondering, the Yankees had won four World Series at that point in their history.

Boone said Tanaka in Game 4, Paxton likely in Game 5 and then go from there. #Yankees— Joel Sherman (@Joelsherman1) October 16, 2019
