    I would love to see Price get the chance at a complete game tonight...

    He started the eighth, but it looks like he's getting pulled after walking Taylor. Love the sorta standing ovation the Red Sox fans are giving Price as he walks off the field.

    Joe Kelly shuts down the eighth inning rally before it can start. 3 outs away! :thumbs-up-smiley:

    I see the despondent looks on the faces of the Dodger players and fans and think on ALL THOSE YEARS Red Sox players and fans had to go through that (without relief). Its tough.

    Loved that Cora let Sale be a part of this game though. Shut the Dodgers down in the ninth. Awesome!

    Congrats to the Red Sox. it's hard to argue they weren't the best team in MLB for 2018 so sometimes things work out as expected.
    One of the players is a "cousin in law" (never quite figured if I can officially claim him as a relative, but I will anyway) so I have a rooting interest in the Red Sox. He's been to the WS before, his team was within a strike (twice) of winning it all in G6, then lost a G7 -- so it's really cool to see he made it back to the WS again and now has his ring.

    I do have a soft spot for the Dodgers and lots of buddies who are long time Dodgers fans so I'm a little sad. I've been to games at Fenway and Dodger Stadium which is always cool.

    Absolutely free great for journeyman Hometown Boy to not only win the WS with his childhood team, but now as WS MVP.

    Oh, somewhere in this favoured land the sun is shining bright,
    The band is playing somewhere, and somewhere hearts are light;
    And somewhere men are laughing, and somewhere children
    shout,
    But there is no joy in LA — Manny Machado has struck out.

    Congrats to the Red Sox and their fanbase, but as a Yankee fan that remembers his first game in Yankees Stadium in 1962, I don't really mean it.;)

    Okay Hal Steinbrenner, what are you and Cashman going to do about improving your team to win your next WS championship in 2019 and/or beyond? Enough with this luxury tax threshold crap as the Red Sox celebrated their championship playing "New York, New York" without any regard to their team's salary. A bad move on Aaron Judge's part about that song and it serves him right, but there's opportunity for redemption in the coming years.
