### 9 18 27 54 72 119 | Los Angeles Dodgers defeat Cincinnati Reds, August 22, 2016, 18-9

Were the Dodgers seeing 'red'?

Red = 9+5+4 = 18 (Baseball = 18)

Today's game comes 64-days before the start of the World Series.  The Dodgers are one of the teams in the conversation for a NL World Series appearance if not the Cubs.

Dodgers = 4+15+4+7+5+18+19 = 72 (World = 72) (Series = 75) (World Series = 57/66/75)
MLB = 13+12+2 = 27 (Notice the 27 runs scored, 18+9)

72 = 7+2 = 9
27 = 2+7 = 9
18 = 1+8 = 9
9 = 9

Last year when I was researching baseball, it occurred to me that the Cincinnati Reds are attached to a long of major league accomplishments, but often times on the "losing end" of those accomplishments.

Also, I'm seeing a Chase Utley getting a lot of respect in the media lately.

Chase = 3+8+1+1+5 = 18/27
Cameron = 3+1+4+5+9+6+5 = 33
Utley = 3+2+3+5+7 = 20
Chase Cameron Utley = 71/80

Chase Utley = 38/47

Chase = 3+8+1+19+5 = 36
Cameron = 3+1+13+5+18+15+14 = 69
Utley = 21+20+12+5+25 = 83
Chase Cameron Utley = 188 (Bavarian Illuminati)
Chase Utley = 119 (All Seeing Eye) (Star of David)

12/17/1978 = 1+2+1+7+1+9+7+8 = 36 (Currently 36-years old)
12/17/1978 = 12+17+(1+9+7+8) = 54
12/17/1978 = 12+17+19+78 = 126
12/17/78 = 107

This year the World Series will begin in a span of 54-days from his birthday.

Baseball = 2+1+1+5+2+1+3+3 = 18/27
Baseball = 2+1+19+5+2+1+12+12 = 54

54 = 5+4 = 9

Chase Utley is in his 13th MLB season as well.

L.A. = 12+1 = 13

Here are some other interesting notes about the Dodgers World Series history...

The first World Series they went to was against the Yankees, back when the Dodgers were in Brooklyn.  That was in the year '41.  USA = 41

Think about A-Rod's retirement this year, centered around '41.  He retired with the Yankees wearing #13, after 13-seasons.  41 is the 13th prime number.

If you look below, you'll notice the Dodgers and Yankees played each other 7-times in the World Series, Brooklyn vs Bronx, before the Dodgers moved to Los Angeles.  Once in Los Angeles, they would compete in a World Series against the Chicago White Sox. 1959, the first time they played anyone other than the NY Yankees in a World Series.  That is interesting in light of the fact that the Cubs have a strong narrative for the World Series this year.

Then what do you know?  The next World Series, against the Yankees again

then Twins
then Orioles
then Athletics
then Yankees (77)
then Yankees (78)
then Yankees (81)

The last time they were in a World Series was against the Oakland Athletics, 1988, 28-years ago.
