"Tatis. Machado. Darvish. Kershaw. Betts. Bauer. Snell. This series served to remind us that the best players who have ever played baseball are playing right now, pitching and hitting and running and fielding at a level never seen before. That’s not meant to denigrate a long line of great baseball players, but to recognize that in 150 years since various stick-and-ball games morphed into “base ball,” the players are always getting better."
