As for the other League Championship Series, it does have this familiar theme going for it

Those series are:

  • 2018 ALDS - Red Sox (108-54) vs. Yankees (100-62)
  • 2018 ACLS - Red Sox (108-54) vs. Astros (103-59)
  • 2019 ALDS - Yankees (103-59) vs. Twins (101-61)
  • 2019 ALCS - Astros (107-55) vs. Yankees (103-59)
