What’s Rob Reading?

Brett Phillips

“A World Series game hinging on him, Brett Phillips unleashes 14 seconds of fortune-flipping chaos”
By Hannah Keyser, Yahoo! Sports

“Despite everything else that had to happen, the most magical, most surprising, most storybook part of the whole game was simply that Brett Phillips got that hit. Mapped by win probability, the 17 ⅔ frames that came before it look like an electrocardiogram for the heartbeat of a Los Angeles Dodgers or Tampa Bay Rays fan as the two best teams in baseball repeatedly wrested the lead back from one another.”
