Nationals manager Dave Martinez when asked who would DH during the games in Houston: "I think at this point either Howie -- Howie (Kendrick) will probably DH, yeah."

Anthony Rendon and George Springer work out together in the offseason in Houston. His response when asked what it mean to get a text from Springer wishing him luck: "I think that would mean the world. It would be awesome. Obviously, we're going to be friends outside of it, but I think when we get in between the lines, obviously, our team is going to want to beat them. And they're going to want to beat us."

Anthony Rendon is from Houston and will have many family and friends at the games at Minute Maid Park. Any ticket requests? "A lot. We'll just say a lot." Will they have to root for the Nationals even if they're from Houston? "Oh yeah, definitely."

Gerrit Cole remembers a certain World Series home run: "I remember I was sitting on the third base side of Angels Stadium down towards the front row and I had a nice perspective of Bonds versus Percival. He throws him this hundred-mile-an-hour fastball up at his neck and Bonds just cranks it out to right field. And I think the stadium just dropped dead for a minute."

My favorite moment from the Astros' portion of World Series media day was when Gerrit Cole was explaining how you have to constantly adjust in the majors and he said, "Like, there's not another league that you get called up to. Although I'm trying to make the argument to have Mike Trout go up to the next league."
