KC's View:
I was surprised to read over the weekend that the Red Sox and Dodgers have met just once in the World Series - in 1916. The Dodgers at the time were playing in Brooklyn, and weren’t even called the Dodgers; they were called the Brooklyn Robins. And while the Red Sox had moved into Fenway Park five years before, the Series was played in Boston at Braves Field, which held more spectators.

One other thing. Playing for the Dodgers that year was a 26-year-old named Casey Stengel. And the Red Sox had a 21-year-old left-handed pitcher on its roster - Babe Ruth.

Content Guy’s Prediction: Red Sox in 6.
