There will be no repeat champ. Boston beat Houston (and Justin Verlander, aka as Mr. Kate Upton) Thursday evening, 4-1, to advance to the World Series as the AL Champion.
Jackie Bradley was named ALCS MVP. For David Price, finally, a postseason win.
The last time a team repeated as WS Champion was when the Yankees won three in a row from 1998-2000. As we know, they were one inning away from making it four in a row in 2001.
Tonight the Dodgers try to wrap up the NL pennant in Game 6 of the NLCS. The Red Sox and Dodgers met once in the WS, in 1916 (the Dodgers were known as the Brooklyn Robins then). Boston, led by 21-yr. old Babe Ruth (known for his pitching, not hitting) beat Brooklyn in that Series. The Dodgers that year had Casey Stengel as a starting OF.
The Red Sox and Brewers have never met in a postseason series.
Turning to the Arizona Fall League. The Yanks have some prospects playing for the Glendale Desert Dogs, who are currently 0-8.
