The Red Sox And Cubs Are Very Likely League Top Seeds

September 21, 2018

It is almost certain that the top seeds in baseball 2018 will be the Boston Red Sox and the Chicago Cubs.

Perhaps these venerable, historic franchises with their iconic playing venues, Boston’s Fenway Park and Chicago’s Wrigley Field, will clash in a World Series 100 years after they last met in one, that in 1918.

It is noteworthy that all 5 American League playoffs qualifiers will have a better record than any National League team and hence will have the home advantage in the World Series.

Additionally I note the ’18 World Series, a Red Sox win, their last such win for 86 years (it was the tenth of what would be 108 seasons sans a World Series title for the Cubs) ended on September 11th, due to World War 1.

It is tragic that the Armistice two months later, supposedly signaling the end of the last war, was dwarfed in length by the title droughts of two baseball teams.
