Major League Baseball has announced the umpire crew for the World Series:

Solid staff, most notably because Joe West and Angel Hernandez are nowhere to be found. Jim Joyce is widely regarded as one of the best umpires in the game, though I think his reputation has been embellished a bit after the ultra-classy way he handled blowing the call to end Armando Galarrago's perfect game.

Game 1 of the World Series will be played on Wednesday night. Adam Wainwright and Jon Lester will be the starting pitchers.
