Sox in 6. Got to win at Fenway. LA will be a challenge.

Sox sweep. Dodgers lead (briefly) for just a few innings of one of the games

DrewDawg runs us through to the off-season. Sox in 4. I'm not assuming it'll be easy, I just think this is truly the best team. They'll be rested and as close to 100% as they've been all season. They've got their eyes on the prize and they're not going to let up.

Sox are 12-2 in their last 3 World Series so going by the percentages, Sox in 4 or 5. Kelly has a mission and the mission is known as: machaca-Machado which means crush-Machado.

This season.
I have to admit that as great as 2013 was, I kind of enjoy seeing the life get sucked out of opposing fans more. Now if it had been the Brewers, I doubt I’d feel that way. But the Sox clinching in LA would be epic. Not that any WS clinching game wouldn’t be epic. But if I get to choose....

In the simulacrum
I predict that this is going to be a genuinely enjoyable World Series to watch, even for neutral fans. I think the Dodgers will have their moments and the sox will prevail. Sox in 6, but it will never feel doomed to go the other way.

Can I just say, I'm just glad it is not the Cardinals.

The path to the world championship is not as easy as we'd hope. The Dodgers show enough swagger to scare the bejeezus out of us.... but the Sox show they can take a punch and prevail in 7.

The last time the Red Sox played in a World Series that they didn’t either win or push to seven games was ... oh wait, that’s never happened.

1903 Win in 8
1912 Win in 7
1915 Win in 5
1916 Win in 5
1918 Win in 6
1946 Loss in 7
1967 Loss in 7
1975 Loss in 7
1986 Loss in 7
2004 Win in 4
2007 Win in 4
2013 Win in 6

Winning in 8 would have a nice symmetry, but I’ll go with Sox in 5, just like the last time we met up with these fools.

La Mancha.
Someone should start an intro to the Dodgers thread. I'd do it myself but I don't know as much about them as I'm sure many of you out there do.
