Would you settle for a Yankee - Red Sox ALCS (I'd like to see Astros-Sox with the Astros advancing). An AL-AL world series is not possible at this time.
A Cubs-Red Sox series would be a classic but the Cubs have a long row to hoe starting with beating the Rockies tonight in the wild card playoff.

Baseball is an actual sport, not a bunch of britholes mincing about on a field in their skivvies.

Tonight's game features a 61 mil.$ payroll
(A's) vs a 162 mil.$ payroll (Yanks). A's are starting a reliever w/ no victories and are expected to use a sucession of them for 5-6 innings. Should be interesting.

I do not understand how one can mentally compute the moment of collision between a spheroid 228.60–234.95 mm in circumference and having a mass of 141.75 to 148.83 g. moving at 152.9–169.14 km/h (the usual speed) in a 1 g. field (and even ignoring air friction) in a time frame such that it can be struck by a object no more than 1,100mm in length, massing no more than 1 kg. and having a diameter of not more than 70mm at the thickest part after traveling over a distance in a distance of 18.3 meters. This is especially difficult when the object to be struck will itself be traveling in an arc -- but see Fortenbaugh's The Biomechanics of the Baseball Swing (Dissertation, U. of Miami, 2011) for a much more complete discussion of this.

Steve Shaw knows what would happen to him
if he were so careless as to talk like that
in a bar in the middle of "Red Sox Nation."

This week is one of those singular weeks, by the way:
all four of Boston's BIG-BUSINESS pro sports are engaged.
(Boston has a professional black-and-white-spherical football team,
but big business they are not)

The Bruins have started their ice hockey appearances
(I cringe at the sight of the ice on the restaurant television screens,
please, don't remind me of last winter already),

The Celtics, pronounced Boston Seltics, have got their
green jerseys on and are starting their basketball games,

The New England Patriots have begun another juggernaut,

and the Boston Red Sox are in play.

All four big-business franchises in the same week.
All with loud muscular followings here.
Only happens during so many weeks in a year.

How can you call it a "World Series" when it is primarily played by clubs in cities, almost entirely within the USA.

The very title "World Series" should indicate some considerable imput from other countries.

Do the odd club elsewhere in the world take part in the "World Series"

I guess it is only when the Red Sox make it into the playoffs that
we get all four pro franchises competing, within the same week,
for the ticketholders' money and time in Boston.

After all there are years when the Red Sox
get shut out before the playoffs,
or get shut out in the earliest part of the playoffs,
and their season ends with somebody muttering about
no joy in Mudville, and all that.

Thankfully Baseball is Trump free but people are using baseball analogies; "Trump was born on 3rd base but out of incompetance he went to second base and complained that he had really hit a triple".

Starting at 8PM the glimmer of hope for the Sox will become a bright flash as they will win again 4-3 without extra innings.

Not only are Americans self centered (re: World Series). You can't get more self centered than one hill in Boston. You see when you use the word 'Yank' on the eastern side of the pond you mean Americans from the USA. When Southerners use it they mean north of the Mason-Dixon Line. North of the Mason Dixon line they mean New England. In New England they mean Massachusetts. In Massachusetts they mean Boston.

In Boston they mean Beacon Hill.

Not for nothing do Bostonians call their environs "The Hub".
