Now that is a great Red Sox story!
Geez, we must be close in age there Bill! When I was like 8 or 9, I went to summer camp with Rico's kids! Thursdays was cookout day and he came up at lunch time and met with all the kids, signed autographs, played ball with us. It was really great. Still got that autograph tucked away.
Would you guys do me a favor and remind me who won the series this time around?
The World Series was won by the Red Sox.
...once in the past 80+ years.
I think he has a good point there.
No doubt the Red Sox are one of the top teams, but they are not as good of a team as they were last year, and they aren't the best team this year. They have had issues with starting pitching (team ERA 4.84, Wakefield/Clement are best starters thus far statistically= ERAs 4.10+, WHIP 1.32+). The offense is great with Damon, Ortiz, Manny, Varitek, Renteria.
The starting pitching is obviously capable of more and the return of Schilling to the rotation in the coming weeks may spark something.
They also need a lot of help in the bullpen. Timlin can't do it himself, and what the hell happened to Keith Foulke?!?!?
They definately don't have a free ride to the playoffs. As a fan of baseball in general (I don't have a team)...I think the Yanks will take the east and it will be a battle between Boston, Baltimore, Minnesota, and Texas for the wild card spot.
Maybe he means how many times has each team won the world series this century? New century, new slate. I think that would make it 1 - 0 in favor of Boston. (2000 is the last year of the 20th century)
Are the Red Sox still in first?
As of this morning the saux are .5 game ahead of the yankees
How about those Angels!
All you Sox fans can give a big thx to Vlad Guerrero!
