It could be a classic Fall Classic.
The Rays, with their payroll and lineup and unorthodox strategies, are still the David of the David and Goliath story; but this year, they’re armed with a flamethrower (or a stable of them), and not a simple slingshot. The Rays upended the Astros and Yankees en route to their first World Series berth since 2008, but how they got here is mostly the same: excellent pitching, timely hitting and a swagger befitting of an early 2000s hip-hop video.
Goliath, though, is still Goliath: The Dodgers and their seemingly endless pipeline of quality talent are vying for a championship for the third time in four years. While Los Dodgers are becoming a tale of “What if?” over “That happened,” 2020 is perhaps their best opportunity at a ‘ship in their recent runs at greatness. The Dodgers are armed with quality arms, versatile hitters and ample experience; if the Rays are going to win their first title, then they’ll have to earn it.
It’s Tyler Glasnow vs. Clayton Kershaw, Rays vs. Dodgers, David vs. Goliath (again). Hold on to your butts.
