Costas said in the pre-game that we had no chance because of the pitching matchup. Twice he has mentioned that the team with the best season record seldom wins the WS. I have always liked Costas, but he's like the others and looks at Washington as a small-market town.
Costas is a St. Louis guy since forever.
From wiki: Costas began his professional career at KMOX radio in St. Louis, Missouri, where he served as a play-by-play announcer for the Spirits of St. Louis of the American Basketball Association in 1974. He also called Missouri Tigers basketball for KMOX, and co-hosted the station's Open Line call-in program.
