On Thursday the San Francisco Giants, one of baseball’s best teams, finished a series against the Los Angeles Dodgers, one of baseball’s best teams.

And now, a day later, the San Francisco Giants, still one of baseball’s best teams, start a series against the Houston Astros, one of baseball’s best teams.

Hopefully this goes as well as the last one.

It’s also likely to be the last game before the Kris Bryant era begins. Yeehaw!
