Los Angeles Dodgers at Boston Red Sox - World Series Game One

An open thread to talk baseball, gerrymandering, leaf color, salamandering, and general what-have-you.

It’s been a rainy, foggy, blustery day in Boston so far, the perfect kind of weather for a World Series contest if you’re from anywhere other than, oh, Los Angeles. With temperatures set to be in the 40’s for most of tonight’s World Series opener, you’ll get to hear comments about the weather from the mic-holders roughly once an inning, especially with Chris Sale on the mound. That skinny dude just always looks cold anyway, much less when it’s actually a bit chilly outside.

The Dodgers will counter Sale’s presence on the mound with a dominant lefty of their own, as Clayton Kershaw will look to continue to rewrite the books on his postseason history. The forty-two-time Cy Young Award winner has historically not been at his best in postseason play, but obviously has a chance tonight to put that behind him with a vintage outing.

Yap about it with us down yonder in the comment section. I’ll say Red Sox in 6, for the record.
