I would prefer to see the Dodgers do it, but the Sox are just too strong. The Dodgers pull one gem pitching start out of it to avoid the sweep.

Crazy considering this is two of biggest markets and prestigious teams in MLB. I watched some, but got bored and changed the channel.

I'll watch when someone can clinch maybe.

I won't watch this World Series...The only baseball games I have watched in the last 10 years are the ones where the Indians are in the post-season -- I catch most of those games unless they are early afternoon starts on weekdays.

Growing up I watched nearly every night for a couple innings with my dad and/or grandpa...at least until bedtime.

It's weird, I love playing baseball (I played baseball in college) but have a hard time watching it. Same with golf. I used to play a lot of golf, but outside the majors, I don't watch much.

Disagree. I think some fans, myself included, are getting tired of the same ole teams in the playoffs and WS. As soon as the Rays wrapped up their 90s win...and didn't make the playoffs, I checked out. I may have stuck around if the Athletics and Cubs would have advance. Not that Chicago hasn't been in it for a little while now, but they felt like underdogs all year. The A's, while I hate that their amazing year cost us a birth, at least were a breath of fresh air in the playoffs. I don't think anyone cares about Boston or NYY being in the playoffs except their fans because it is a broken record in a broken system. You got the cash.....grab all the good players.

There should be some golf-like handicap on records to reflect the differences in overall roster spending. We win the East this year hands down!

Yeah, I sure am tired of watching the Rockies, Brewers, and Indians in the playoffs every year.

Looks like Boston in 5.

They just don't have a weak spot, and except for the 18 inning tag team game, this has been all Red Sox.
