I just didn't like the loveable loser mentality that accompanied a team with a payroll over $100 million.
This team was different and I tip my cap.
Yes, you still gave more money that most teams could to Mike Napoli, Shane Victorino and Johnny Gomes, but that's alright. I actually enjoyed watching David Ortiz murder the Cardinals' pitching staff and Jon Lester was nothing short of spectacular.
Since all who read this blog are die hard baseball fans I hope we can all respect the Red Sox run. And I suppose it's nice that they got to win one in Fenway.
Note to Red Sox fans: You are no longer loveable losers, you are now perennial threats, so you can't play that card. Your loveable loser membership doesn't get renewed until another 50+ year drought. I have a feeling that isn't a problem.
Really wanted Carlos Beltran to get a ring, as a free agent he'll have his pick of contenders next season, can't wait for #OpeningDay2014Congrats to Carlos Gomez and the Gold Glove and fingers crossed for next year. Here's a festively scary Red Sox card for your Halloween pleasure:
