A New Match-Up! #43 of 64!
So it took until the 108th World Series, but we finally can say two-thirds of the match-ups have happened. It may take another century or longer to complete all 64, what with all the expansion teams. The Yanks are the only team to have met all 8 teams from the other league, while the Red Sox, Dodgers, and Giants have met 7 of 8.
Congrats to Scutaro, Lopez, and the Giants. That triple-bat-hit was fucking crazy. Even crazier was Buck and McCarver trying for the life of them for a half-hour to figure out what the hell happened.

*I mean "since 1901." Without going through a complete history lesson, some of the NL teams date back to 1876, and some of the AL franchises existed before the league started in 1901. Also, when I say "team," I mean "franchise." For example, the Twins never played the Giants in a World Series as the Twins, but they did as the Senators.
