World Series starts on Wednesday, Red Sox vs Dodgers. They’ve only met once before in the World Series way back in 1916.
Back to back appearances for the Dodgers. Last year they had the best record coming from the toughest division, but got run down in game 7 by the Astros courtesy of a red hot George Springer and superior trades (Verlander >>> Darvish by such a margin it ain’t funny). They’ve just come off a hectic NLCS with the Brewers and that ‘pen.
This year it’s Boston who’ve had the best record from arguably the toughest division, in which the 3rd placed Rays had a record on par with the NL division winners. They’ve also done the Yankees and defending champion Astros in a canter through the post-season.
Got a soft spot for Boston but as a Dodgers fan hoping history repeats and that being the best team all year counts for nada in October. Also Chris Taylor is my man, what a guy.
