A symphonic World Series battle.

In the unlikely event the Minnesota Twins had surprised us, played decent baseball, and made it to the World Series (which begins tonight, you may have heard), here’s something you wouldn’t be seeing: Two orchestras — St. Louis’ and Boston’s — “playing trash” at each other.

Like our local baseball team, our orchestra isn’t a functioning entity either.

Another reason to envy these two cities. And they even brought Seiji Ozawa back.

Maybe Osmo Vänskä will return for the next Twins’ appearance in the Series.
