World Series - Los Angeles Dodgers v Boston Red Sox - Workout Photo by Elsa/Getty Images

With the World Series finally starting today, we have one last preview with a scout giving his evaluation of both teams. (Kimball Crossley; Boston Globe)

Xander Bogaerts is one of the few Red Sox players with experience on this stage, and he’s not going to be caught up in the pressure of the World Series. (Evan Drellich; NBC Sports Boston)

Eduardo Núñez was one of the leaders in a players-only meeting following the team’s ALDS Game Two loss to the Yankees, and a slip of the tongue of his has become one of the rallying cries of the team. (Chris Cotillo; Masslive)

Over on the other side, Justin Turner might just be the scariest player on the Dodgers roster. He was extremely close to coming to Boston instead of signing in Los Angeles. (John Tomase; WEEI)

For the second straight series, the manager matchup includes Alex Cora and a friend of the Red Sox manager. (Sean McAdam; Boston Sports Journal) ($$)

Dustin Pedroia probably doesn’t appreciate people looking to his post-playing career right now, but whenever that comes he could very well follow in Alex Cora’s footsteps. (Jason Mastrodonato; Boston Herald)

Old friend Tim Britton got back on the Red Sox beat for a minute to write this great story on Raquel Ferreira, the Red Sox’ “organizational mom.” (Tim Britton; The Athletic) ($$)
