Here we are.
The odds tonight are with the Boston Red Sox. Of the 22 other teams to take a 3-0 World Series lead, only three did not pull off the sweep. They took it in five.
The baseball gods seem to have set this night up. On the mound for the Red Sox is Jon Lester, who if he wasn’t tired of answering questions about his battle with lymphoma before surely is now, and even more surely will be if he’s the winning pitcher of the clinching game of the World Series.
After 86 years of futility, the Red Sox are set to reward their longsuffering followers twice in four years. Enjoy the culmination, whenever it comes.
If it comes tonight, here is your spot for comment.
