Dodgers and Red Sox now the dream World Series

Last week, we learned from Fox that Cubs-Red Sox would be the network's World Series of choice.

So long, Cubs, hello Dodgers.

The best series for the TV execs now would be the Dodgers and the Red Sox.

That was from Daily Variety. This from the San Diego Union-Tribune:

" know Fox is desperate for a Dodgers-Red Sox World Series, with Phillies-Red Sox a distant second choice. When I asked someone from another network how much it would mean to Fox to have the Red Sox instead of the Rays, that person said, “Can you say 'priceless?'”

It will be the network's luck, and ours, to get Phillies-Rays.
