I’m a big baseball fan and my two favorite teams are the Boston Red Sox and the San Francisco Giants.
I lived in the Boston area for about 20 years before moving to San Francisco 12 years ago. And as a baseball fan, one of my fantasies has been for the Red Sox, representing the American League, and the Giants, representing the National League, to meet up in the World Series. And this year, there is a possibility that I will realize my fantasy.
One of baseball’s biggest rivalries is between the Boston Red Sox and the New York Yankees.
Both teams ended the 2021 season a few days ago with 90-72 record and tonight they square off in the American League Wild Card Game. The winner will move on to face the AL East winner, the Tampa Bay Rays. The 2021 season will be over for the loser of tonight’s contest.
The other big baseball rivalry is between the San Francisco Giants and the Los Angeles Dodgers.
The Giants had the best record in baseball, 107-55, but the Dodgers were right behind them with a record of 106-56. Because the Giants won the AL West, the Dodgers will play the St. Louis Cardinals tomorrow in the NL Wild Card game. The Dodgers are highly favored.
Right now I’d say it’s a long shot that the Red Sox and the Giants will meet in the World Series later this month. But one can dream, right?
