"In the seventh inning fans all get up and sing 'Take Me Out to the Ball Game,' and they're already there. It's really a stupid thing to say and I don't know who made 'em sing it. Why would somebody that's there get up and sing take me out to the ball game? The first person to do it must have been a moron." - Phillies color commentator Larry Andersen

The Red Sox are 7-2 in post season play...
against 100 win team and a 103 win team

Strong record against quality opponents

:shock:
Boston's ELO rating, calculated by 538.com, is trending at all-time levels. The Sox are currently at 1597. A World Series win would vault them to over 1600 as their final 2018 rating. That's pretty rarified air. Only 17 teams in MLB history have finished at 1600 or higher. Depending on the scores, a sweep might register enough to surpass the 1610 final score registered by the 1998 NY Yankees. If that happens, it will be interesting what the Sox composite ELO score will be, since the '98 Yankees composite score of 1609 ranks as the 5th best score ever, and the highest ever in the Integrated Era. This is an historic season for the Sox.

This Red Sox team could also become the 1969 Baltimore Orioles...

So it will be a bicoastal World Series. The networks will be thrilled.

One of least interesting World Series in recent history. Two big market, big dollar teams. Been watching the World Series for 50 years, and this one I won't even try and give a damn about.

Houston brought a level of interest, being a first time winner, and #17 in team salary last year. However, they have moved up to #9 this year.
