I mean, I didn't even suggest it first
each round of 9 games series' would take two weekswhy not? just because its 9 and we don't see that in any other sport?
Baseball more than any other is based on length
imagine the epic 9 game series that we would see.. wouldn't be often but it would happen
meanwhile the corpse of Evan Longoria has no problem beating the wind, and they somehow make that hold up. they're obviously not the "underdog" anymore, but i'd still say they kinda are. underdog stories aren't fun when it's the Red Sox and the Giants
Eh, payroll has little to do with it"I mean, here we are surprising everybody but ourselves," Hernandez said. "We knew in spring training we had the team to make it this far and here we are."
Yes, Kike, no one thought the team with the FOURTH HIGHEST PAYROLL IN MLB COULD MAKE THE FINAL FOUR TEAMS.
We all thought the Rays, who beat you for the division with $104 million LESS IN PAYROLL THAN YOU, were too much for you to handle! Congratulations!
Eh, payroll has little to do with it
Per Spotrac, The 2021 Red Sox were #5 in payroll - the Mets were #3 in MLB, and the highest in the NL
And the March 2021 odds for winning the WS had the Red Sox at 19th of 30 teams, a money line of +4500
Opening Day is almost here, and the MLB offseason has brought us plenty of change. That has brought significant shifts in the odds to win the World Series fromwww.fanduel.com
Basically, of all the teams in the top half (15 teams) in MLB payrolls, the Red Sox were given the second least respect (even the Angels and Phillies were +3500)
The least respect was given to the 2021 SF Giants, who were given as much chance to win the WS as the Orioles! (+11000)
So in some sense I'd love to see a Red Sox/Giants WS, someone out there could get really rich for no good reason at all!
