The quest is complete. Do the Red Sox even send in Kimbrel without the lead?
A team to remember from top to bottom.
It was nearly too much to take for Los Angeles fans who watched the Boston Red Sox take the series in five games Sunday by winning 5-1, the same score of the Houston Astros' series-clinching win a year earlier.
The Red Sox, after winning a franchise record and Major League Baseball best 108 games during the regular season, carried their domination all the way to the World Series and overwhelmed the Dodgers 4-1 in the best-of-seven series.
"Seeing all these grown men over there just acting like little kids, that's what it's all about".
"This is why I came to Boston".
This was the sixth consecutive year the Dodgers were in the postseason, but it wasn't quite as straightforward to get back to this point.
That was the Red Sox's privilege this year, and Price said doing so brought back memories from the 2008 Rays, when as a rookie he closed out the pennant-clinching game, over the Red Sox, to reach the World Series for the first time.
"I don't know where we stand in history and all that", said Dave Dombrowski, the club's president of baseball operations.
Let's say you are a Red Sox fan or you have family/friends who are Red Sox fan (s).
"I guess "lighter" is a good word", he said recently.

In 2017, 11 students were injured after a man climbed over the wall of a kindergarten with a knife and began attacking them. An unknown number of children were taken to hospital for trauma care following the stabbing, according to CGT.
His two stellar World Series starts - having also started Game Two - also put to rest any questions about his ability to perform in the post-season.
All in all, the Red Sox were the better team and deserved the championship in every way. "And I've gone through a lot in my life or in my career to be here, and I couldn't be more thankful".
Players' families, many dressed in red, congregated on the field to join the celebration, some holding babies, some watching children run across the outfield in glee.
Los Angeles Dodgers manager Dave Roberts was booed when his name was announced before Game 5 of the World Series on Sunday, the final game at Dodger Stadium in 2018. The last in that sequence, Puig, tapped one to Price, who made the easy toss to first to end the seventh inning. They simply ran into a better team. Only the Yankees (27) and Cardinals (11) have been more successful, and Boston is now tied for third with the Athletics.
Here are some thoughts on the Red Sox's Game 5 victory and 2018 World Series championship. He then showed he was truly over what he called "the hump" with a strong six-inning outing and a win in Game 2 of the Series.
Boston never trailed in Game 5.
"It's not that we're playing with the lead, but we feel that for the team, for where we're at pitching-wise, it's good to go with David".
The 33-year-old Price, a Cy Young Award victor in 2012, long pitched under an October shadow cast by his regular-season success. Hill walked Xander Bogaerts and struck out Eduardo Nunez for the first out of the frame before Roberts lifted his left-handed starter after 91 pitches.
Since ending an 86-year World Series title drought in 2004, Boston has now won four of the past 15 championships. "I think that kind of lit a fire under everybody", Red Sox infielder Brock Holt said.
Pearce added the coup de grace in the eighth, touching up Pedro Baez with one final swing. In seven innings, he gave up four runs on seven hits - three of which were home runs - and struck out five. He tapped his heart several times to Red Sox fans behind the first base dugout while walking to the bench. Sale ended by throwing a slider past a falling Manny Machado, a meager 4 for 22 (.182) in the Series, and raised both arms.
