World Series breakdown & 'Year of the Pitcher' author Sridhar Pappu
Grandstanding by Yahoo Sports
It's October, the weather is (mostly) cooling, and postseason baseball is upon us! We're in World Series-heavy mode here at Grandstanding today; we begin with a breakdown of the Dodgers-Astros World Series. Who do you root for if you don't know who to root for? From there, we talk with Sridhar Pappu, author of "Year of the Pitcher." It's an outstanding look at 1968, a tumultuous year in both baseball and the country, with two figures--pitchers Denny McLain and Bob Gibson--serving as avatars for the tensions tearing apart the country. (Sound familiar?) It's an exceptional look at a difficult time in American history, and we highly recommend it. Thanks for listening, and enjoy the World Series!
Reporter and author SRIDHAR PAPPU joins our show to discuss his recent Male Animal column in The New York Times about what happens when big-time sports fans find themselves no longer caring as much. Is it inevitable? Should "fair-weather fandom" lose its stigma? And for the love of god, is Adam a Packers fan or a Broncos fan?!
