Overview[edit]

The 2018 World Series featured the Boston Red Sox, coming off the best season in team history, facing the Los Angeles Dodgers, who had been pre-season favorites to defend their National League pennant, but had taken a difficult route to get there, marred by injuries, slumps and unexpectedly strong opposition. While there was a big difference in the two teams' win totals in the regular season, by the time the World Series opened, this had been pretty much negated, given the Dodgers had gotten back all of their key injured, players, and had replaced those who were still out - like SS Corey Seager - with top-shelf veterans. It was the second postseason match-up between the two teams, although the first had taken place way back in the 1916 World Series when the Dodgers were still the Brooklyn Robins. With the two teams having huge fan bases and being big draws on television, it was a highly anticipated match-up.
