The Los Angeles Dodgers and Boston Red Sox are making history in the 2018 World Series. Although the World Series rosters are not yet released, we decided to break down how the two historic franchises line up.
The Los Angeles Dodgers did not want to make the fans wait another 29 years for a National League pennant. The 2018 Dodgers, who are a complete antithesis from the 2017 Dodgers, have fought tooth and nail to return to the World Series.
This year, the Dodgers see the roles reversed as they are no longer the juggernaut. The Boston Red Sox have been the best team in the MLB all season and pose a great challenge for the Dodgers to overcome.
However, the Dodgers ended up losing last year as the favorites with home field advantage. Perhaps the tables really can turn and the Dodgers can punch the Red Sox in the mouth early and steal the series before the team can start to gain momentum.
Quite frankly, this is going to be an interesting series either way. Both franchised are filled with history that only includes one World Series matchup. That came all the way back in 1916 when the Dodgers were the Brooklyn Robins.
Despite the seemingly overwhelming mismatch on paper, the two rosters are actually much closer than you would think.
It is World Series time and we are bringing coverage from all angles. Here is our complete roster comparison between the Los Angeles Dodgers and Boston Red Sox.
