Best two words in sports: Game Seven. The last game of the year pits the American League Champion Houston Astros (101-61) at your National League Champion Los Angeles Dodgers (104-58). This is the first World Series since 1970 (Reds-Orioles) and the first postseason series since 1977 (Yankees-Royals) to feature two 100 win teams!
The franchises have slighty different histories...
Houston is looking for its first World Series title in history. Established in 1962 the Astros have two pennants. This year, of course, and in 2005 while a member of the NL.
One of the most storied teams in all of sports the Dodgers are looking for their 7th World Series crown and first since 1988. Founded in Brooklyn in 1884(!) the then Brooklyn Athletics called New York home through the 1957 season. In Brooklyn the franchise amassed 1 AA pennant (?), 12 NL pennants, and 1 World Championship. After the move to the west coast the Dodgers have won 10 NL crowns and 5 titles. 22 total pennants. 6 championships. Not bad.
The 2017 World Series has been one of the best ever, featuring two extra inning games already. 22 home runs have been hit thus far (a ws record) and game 2 featured 8 hrs (a WS record). Game 5 was one of the craziest baseball games in history. The balls are juiced and they're flying all over the place!
I don't have a dog in the fight. Was hoping the series would go 7, and here we are! Slight rooting interest for the Astros. Hopefully they can pull a '13 Red Sox (marathon bombing) as a team of destiny and bring some happiness to a ravaged Houston. Also...JV!
