The season is over as far as I'm concerned but MLB insists on one more best-of-seven set before officially closing the book on 2015. Apparently, Game 1 of the World Series between the team I can't bring myself to identify and the New York Mets was supposedly an eventful one.
USA TODAY looks at Edinson Volquez, whose father passed away with Volquez apparently not knowing about it until after his Game 1 start. Also, Salvador Perez may/may not be cheating with some unknown substance behind his shinguard. FOX experienced a blackout during the game leading to some awesome tweets.
