If the Dodgers want to win their first championship in three decades, they better start winning games. The Red Sox, who have won a whopping 117 games this year between the regular season and post-season, have continued to steamroll the league in the Fall Classic, taking the first two games of this series. But we move the series to the West Coast, where temps are expected to be about 30 degrees warmer, and the Red Sox will be without a DH. There was talk of moving J.D. Martinez to the outfield and Mookie Betts to second base, hurting the defense, or even keeping Martinez out of the starting lineup due to an ankle injury. Instead, he will play left field with Andrew Benintendi sitting.
