Red Sox-Dodgers Series matchup would be a big deal

The Red Sox-Dodgers series next week in Los Angeles could very well be a prelude to the World Series. Who would have envisioned that scenario last Aug. 25 when the Sox, spiraling to a last-place finish, purged payroll by sending Carl Crawford, Adrian Gonzalez, Josh Beckett, and Nick Punto out west for a package of young players — only two of whom remain (righthanders Rubby De La Rosa and Allen Webster).

Dodgers president Stan Kasten won’t even broach the subject of the World Series.
