This year's World Series will be one for the ages. Two teams that haven't won in over half a century. One's been waiting over 100 years. Both want to win. Both took so many leaps to get here. This may be the World Series to end all World Series, and I am so ready to watch.
As for the runners up:
The Dodgers came a long way this season, giving some definite postseason effort and building a team with youth. Sadly, it didn't come to fruition this year, but they can definitely make it work in the near future. There's enough there, including Corey Seager, Kenta Maeda and that roster depth, that has a championship team in the making.
