Recap: 108-54 (1st in AL East, World Series Champions)
What can I say about this Red Sox team? They won the World Series. The level at which they played was insane. As a Yankees fan, I’m well aware that no lead was safe when it came to the Red Sox last year, they could always pull something out of their hat. When it comes to wins for this season, the Red Sox and Yankees have the highest projected win totals at 95.5. You just know it’s going to be a battle all season long.
The final matchup in the 2018 Major League Baseball Season is set. The Los Angeles Dodgers, the National League Champions with a record of 92-71 in the regular season are going up against the Boston Red Sox who had a record of 108-54 during the regular season. To get to the World Series, the Dodgers defeated the Atlanta Braves 3-1 and the Milwaukee Brewers 4-3. The Red Sox had a slightly easier time making it to the Fall Classic by defeating their rivals, the New York Yankees, 3-1 and defeating the defending World Champion, Houston Astros, 4-1. It seems like the Red Sox will be more well-rested going into the final series of the year, but let’s take an in-depth look at how these two division champions match up.
