It's been quite a stressful year as far as sports are concerned. Season cancellations and restarts, safety concerns, loss of big money, etc. It's not been a very pretty sight. This won't look good in the history books.
This year, the MLB season was shortened to 60 games. The MLB has been going through quite a lot since it was discovered that the Houston Astros cheated in the 2017 World Series when they won their first title. What's worse is that they were handed a light punishment. Rob Manfred, the Commissioner of Baseball even allowed them to keep their title, causing further controversy.
However, while baseball is still in a very deep predicament, there's still the World Series to look forward to. While it won't be the same without any fans in attendance, it'll still be something.
This year's World Series could be decided between the New York Yankees and the Los Angeles Dodgers. It would great for baseball to feature a World Series between two classic rivals. The rivalry dates back to 1941 when the Dodgers were in Brooklyn. They two met in the 1941 World Series where the Yankees won. They've been in a total of eleven World Series with the Yankees winning eight times. Even after the Dodgers moved to Los Angeles, the rivalry stayed alive.
There's much history between the two in the World Series. The last time the two met in the World Series was in 1981 where the Dodgers won. It would great if 29 years later, the two met again for baseball's ultimate prize.
Both the Yankees and Dodgers seem to have the potential of making it to the World Series as they've both loaded. The Dodgers are determined to win the World Series as they came up short in 2017 and 2018. The Yankees, on the other hand, want to win their 28th title in history.
