The World Series is set. The Houston Astros will try to win their second title in three years, while the Washington Nationals will try to win their first.

But will you be there to watch it? Tickets are currently available on StubHub. (If you’ve got more than $650/per ticket for standing room only. If you want to sit, it’ll be at least $850.)

The series opens Tuesday in Houston after the Astros clinched the American League Championship Series on Saturday night with a 6-4 win against the New York Yankees in Game 6.

They’ll start ace Gerrit Cole, who hasn’t lost since late May.

The Astros also feature another Cy Young candidate in the American League in Justin Verlander and feature a third starter, Zack Greinke, who would be most teams’ ace.

The Nationals, meanwhile, counter with Max Scherzer, who won the Cy Young in 2016 and 2017, finished in second place last year and, before for an injury this season, was a strong contender to take home the hardware again. After him comes Stephen Strasburg, also a 2019 Cy Young candidate, and Patrick Corbin, who was last offseason’s big pickup and who won 14 games and posted an ERA+ of 141 this season.
