The one upside to the slightly premature end of the Dodgers’ remarkable season – a season which brought them their second National League pennant in a row, lest we forget – is that in bowing out when they did, they denied the Red Sox the opportunity to win at home.
A small consolation, perhaps, but a worthy one.
Congratulations to the Red Sox.
As for my Dodgers, we have been here before. Wait till next year!
