Shattered Dream

The Red Sox did what they had to do, but the Giants faltered. Ten days ago I wrote a post sharing how I was dreaming about the potential of a World Series this year between the Boston Red Sox and the San Francisco Giants. Well, the Red Sox did their part by first beating the New York Yankees in the American League Wild Card game and then besting the Tampa Bay Rays in their best-of-five divisional series.

But last night, the Giants were unable to bring it home, losing — at home — to their arch rivals, the Los Angeles Dodgers, in the best-of-five National League divisional series in a heartbreaking game, and thereby dashing my dream of a Red Sox-Giants World Series.

Now the Red Sox have to face the Houston Astros in the best-of-seven American League Championship series, the winner of which will go on to the World Series to face off against the winner of the National League Championship series between the LA Dodgers and the Atlanta Braves.

If the Sox can get past the Astros, they’ll be in the World Series, and at least half of my dream will be realized. Go Sox!

    Appreciate your warning
    (I really play crisscross)
    Although I might sound critical
    I’m sorry for your loss……

    # crisscross – a complicated body sport played down here
    Similar rules to crosscriss, if you follow me….

    JD just hit a grand slam in the first inning. It’s JUST the first inning, but still, it’s a good sign to start off with four runs in the bank! Fingers crossed!
