It was quite a World Series for the Dodgers. Just making it in back-to-back years is a pretty big deal, and that epic Friday game will be one for the history books for sure. Of course, none of that changes the final outcome. The Red Sox took the trophy and Dodgers continue a 30 year streak without a championship win.
When it came time to share some anguish over the Dodgers World Series loss, fans took to Twitter to put their love for–and frustration with–the boys in blue out into the world. Here are a few of our favorite reactions.

"It might just be a 'Play better' thing.'"
For a second year in a row, an opponent celebrated a world championship inside Dodger Stadium, and the Dodgers pondered what might have been. https://t.co/qTyg2go1Tg

Hey, at least now we know not to waste $250M+ on Manny Machado #dodgers

First time since the 30’s a team has back to back WS losses at home and Alex Cora celebrated back to back at Dodger stadium in both. As a coach with the Astros and now as manager of the RedSox. #Dodgers season is over.

#Dodgers RF Yasiel Puig, in Spanish: "We basically gifted it to Boston, which is a great team. We made bad decisions, we did bad things on the field. We made it easer on them to win." pic.twitter.com/jvGBEzSWks

Wow I still can’t believe we were about to make the best come back in history and the Sox blew it for us… #dodgers

JT taking it as hard as anyone interview so far. They really ought to make him #Dodgers captain already. What they’re waiting for, I have no idea.

Catching some hell for this post but I don't care. The "you lose ergo you suck" idea is simplistic and reductionist. I refuse to assign moral weakness, fear or lack of fortitude to athletes who simply do not perform. That's not how humans work. https://t.co/EdQTMssXBA

Joy > Heartbreak. We'll always have our scrappy, 18 innings win. Thanks, @Dodgers for picking me up when I needed you, and thanks #Dodgers Twitter for picking me up when they couldn't. Onward to next season! pic.twitter.com/eJs2vkGJlg

And while it might all seem like disappointment now, just remind yourself: March 28, 2019 really isn’t that far away.
