Social media is buzzing on the eve of Game 1 of the 2018 World Series, and why not? Two historic franchises. Two managers who have played for both teams. Kershaw vs. Sale. There’s a lot to chew on between now and 8:09 p.m.
Below are the six most interesting tweets — some serious, some fun — I read this morning.
Clayton Kershaw vs. Chris Sale is, objectively, one of the greatest #WorldSeries pitching matchups ever. Kershaw ranks *first* in @MLB history in ERA+ among all pitchers with 1400+ career IP. Chris Sale is ninth. Enjoy tonight, Baseball World. @MLBNetwork @Dodgers @RedSox

These are the jerseys the #Dodgers and #RedSox wore the last time they met in a #WorldSeries, which was 102 years ago. Pictured left is Sox shortstop Everett Scott, on the right is Brooklyn catcher Chief Meyers. pic.twitter.com/tUpufP7WH6

Boston, October 1916 – If anyone on Twitter plans on taking their Ford Model T to the Dodgers-Red Sox game tonight, you might want to avoid parking lots like this one seen outside of Braves Field during the 1916 World Series @DonBanks @MikeSilvermanBB pic.twitter.com/pzwv2Lf4yC
