Admittedly, I’m not the biggest baseball fan on the planet. Of the four major sports, baseball is by far and away the one I watch the least.

Yet, we’re still in a whacky season, and I’m interested to see how the World Series shakes out in these unique circumstances.

One of the coolest parts about this series is that the Dodgers have the second highest payroll in the MLB and the Rays have the 28th.

It’s a classic tale of the rich vs. the poor. It’s David vs. Goliath when it comes to how much players are being paid.
