2018 World Series: Why the LA Dodgers Will Lose
By Jake Mastroianni
As painful as it was for San Francisco Giants fans to witness, the Los Angeles Dodgers will play in the 2018 World Series — but here is why they will lose.
This 2018 World Series may get great TV rating because of the LA and Boston markets, but I couldn’t care less about this matchup.
How boring is it to see these two teams in the 2018 World Series?
The Boston Red Sox have become the New York Yankees of old and are just as arrogant. Their fans are hard to bear, and I am family who are die-hard Red Sox fans.
And then, of course, you have the evil Los Angeles Dodgers. No San Francisco Giants fan in their right mind will enjoy watching the Dodgers play in another World Series.
Yes, I’m going to watch the series — I love baseball too much not to. However, this matchup of two powerhouse teams is just blah to me.
But San Francisco Giants fans can rest easy, because the Dodgers are not going to win it all. How do I know that, because this is the Dodgers we are talking about.
They haven’t the World Series in 30 years. Even with all of the great teams they’ve had over the years, I’ve yet to witness the Dodgers winning a World Series.
They’ve been to the postseason 11 times since 1988, and each time they’ve gone home empty-handed. Why should 2018 be any different?
The Dodgers have been to the playoffs six straight seasons, and this will be their second straight trip to the World Series. Last year they had the trophy within heir grasp but managed to choke yet again.
Plus, they’re going up against a powerhouse team from the American League in the Boston Red Sox. The team who won 108 games this year before dusting the 100-win New York Yankees and 103-win Houston Astros in the playoffs.
I’ll be honest, I thought there was no way they would beat that Astros team, but they beat them in five games. Sure there are question marks in the Red Sox pitching staff, but that offense is relentless up-and-down the lineup.
And don’t be fooled d by the Dodgers series win over the Milwaukee Brewers, that was terrible managing from both sides. That junk won’t get it done against Boston.
Part of this is me just telling myself everything will be alright, and I don’t want to watch Manny Machado’s smirk smile in a World Series celebration, but I really think Boston will win.
I mean they have to, the baseball world can’t be that cruel to San Francisco Giants fans this year, can they?
