The Los Angeles Dodgers are just tearing apart the oppositions and there is no end to their superiority as they need just a win to advance to their first World Series in 30-years. With the Yankees making news in the ALCS, a rematch against the New York Yankees from their classic 1978 series are just days away to reoccur.
