The Yankees have proven, the last few years, that winnings streaks and regular season antics don't mean crap unless you can back it up in the playoffs. A good example of that was the 2001 Mariners. They had the best record ever and didn't make it to the ALCS. Then this year, when the Yanks somehow won over 100 games without a single pitcher having 15Ws. It comes back to bite you in the end if you have any flaw at all. Which is why the Red Sox (who have commited 8 errors in 2 games) are going to have issues unless they get their act together in the field.

Im not from the US so this may sound ignorant but why is it called a world series when all the teams come from the US and Canada?

The teams come from Canada and the US but the players come from everywhere. They have guys from Cuba and Puerto Rico too, just to name a couple of countries. When you live in a country where you can go to school for 1 hour and play baseball until the sun goes down it's no surprise a lot of these kids are good.

Most likely becuase at the time the World Series started the US was the only country playing baseball, so it pretty much was the World Series at the time, now Baseball is also played in the Latin American countries and Japan, but as far as I know not to extensively in Europe, Africa, or the rest of Asia. Much like whoever wins the Super Bowl really are the World Champs because nobody else really plays Football.
