And just like that, the 108-win Boston Red Sox are World Champions!
What a season it was. Even after winning 108 games, there were a far amount of questions going into the ALDS versus the New York Yankees. Having won only one playoff game the last two seasons, could this team band together to win when it mattered? Could David Price come up clutch? Would the bats wake up when it mattered? Was Boston clutch enough? Continue reading “2018 World Series Champions”
Week 7 comes to a close with the Giants and Falcons matchup no one wants to see. Not going to lie, this has been a decent week in terms of things we’ve learned. We got Blake Bortles looking like he just got his sister pregnant, the Dolphins being who they are (losers), and Justin Tucker finally looks like a normal kicker! Let’s take a look at what we learned! Continue reading “What we Learned Week 7”
As Andrew Benintendi roamed in left field to secure the final out of the American League Championship Series, the Red Sox cemented a World Series appearance for the 4th time in 15 seasons.
Imagine telling that to the faithful fans that had to watch Aaron Boone smack a home run off of Tim Wakefield in Game 7 of the 2003 ALCS.
Imagine 15 years after that soul-crushing hit, where the Yankees looked poised to win their 5th championship in 8 seasons, that it would be the Red Sox – not the Yankees – with a chance to be the team of the century.
No one would have believed you… and well, that pretty much summarizes this crazy journey it has been being a Boston sports fan (not just a Red Sox fan) since the turn of the century.
I’ll admit, I’m a casual baseball fan. You can probably see that through my writings about baseball. I don’t know much about swings or pitching motions or other shit like that. I’m a simple man. I see stats, I see plays, and I can see what are good situations and bad situations. I’m not into the WAR stat or any other nerd stat. I like the Red Sox and I’ve talked enough about them for 10 years to know what I’m talking about.
With the Lakers bringing in LeBron James and a supporting cast of NBA vets fit for reality tv, this upcoming season will be nothing short of a movie. What movie genre it will be is nearly impossible to predict. It could be a comedy where the rest of the league laughs as LeBron drags a core of unprepared young players to the eighth seed. A horror film where some of the villains of Lebron’s playoff past attempt to destroy his team from the inside. Maybe this season could be a blockbuster like Creed with this new roster exceeding expectations.
