Boston vs LA, This Time It’s For The World Series

Boston versus LA, something that that rings a rather familiar tone in the sports world. But this time it isn’t the Boston Celtics taking on the Los Angeles Lakers, no this time it is the Boston Red Sox taking on the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Boston defeated the Houston Astros in the ALCS and the Dodgers defeated the Brewers in the NLCS.

Both teams have a storied past, well for LA that past connects to a different city, the city of Brooklyn. As a franchise the Dodgers have 6 World Series titles, 5 of them coming in LA and the other being in 1955, three years before the Dodgers took their talents to LA.

As for Boston, well they have eight World Series titles, three of which have come since 2004, a year in which a gritty bunch of ballplayers lead by David Ortiz and Pedro Martinez led Boston to its first title since 1918 thus breaking the curse of Babe Ruth.

In 2018 we are talking about two teams that have massive payrolls and with that the lofty annual expectations of making it to the promised land of a World Series title. Boston won 108 games, a franchise high, LA won 92 games and narrowly captured their division by a one game margin over the Colorado Rockies.

This series is poised to be one for the record books with plenty of drama and talent to go around with two managers who have a soft spot with Red Sox fans, Dave Roberts and Alex Cora.

Boston is willing to whatever it takes with Cora already thinking of playing a gold glove outfielder in Mookie Betts at second base just to keep JD Martinez in the lineup in NL Parks. And for Betts, he has the right mindset.

“If that’s what it takes to win, I’ll do whatever,” said Betts on Saturday. “Gotta do anything to get that ring.”

LA is just as willing to do anything with Roberts inserting Clayton Kershaw to seal their game 7 victory over the Brewers.

Game 1 is on Tuesday with Chris Sale on the mound taking on a likely starter in Kershaw.

Who will win? Who will take home a World Series title? Well only time will answer that one, but my money is on Boston.
