Although they have not been hitting a lick (save for David Ortiz) this Red Sox team finds a way to win. They now have a chance to win their first World Championship at Fenway since 1918. Go Red Sox!!

Although I am not a Red Sox fan they gave a very entertaining World Series and the most intriguing games since Game 6 two years ago. Not crazy about the beards but I am happy they won for you!

As a Yankees fan, you had to know I wasn't planning to come into a review of the Boston Red Sox expecting to write a slew of wonderful things about the team. But as a reviewer, I'm obligated to be as objective as I possibly can. I'm very familiar with the history of what sportswriter Dan Shaughnessy refers to as the Olde Town Team, and I'm afraid that I have very little reason to be endeared to the Boston Red Sox even from the most objective viewpoint.      I …

The are one of the marquee franchises in all of professional sports.  At this writing they have sold out a record 550 consecutive games!   Meanwhile,  they have won two World Championships in the past six years.  According to Forbes magazine the franchise is currently valued at a nifty $833 million.   And while other professional sports teams struggle during the current economic crisis the Boston Red Sox, like Ol' Man River, just keep on rolling …

I guess I would qualify as a frustrated writer. My work requires very little writing and so since 1999 I have been writing reviews on non-fiction books and anthology CD's on amazon.com. I never could … more

Wiki

The arrival of spring awakens the citizens of Red Sox Nation and the annual quest for a World Series victory by the local nine. They began in 1901 as the Boston Americans of the newly formed American League. They won the first ever World Series in 1903 over the Pittsburgh Pirates. In 1908 they changed their name to the Red Sox. In 1912 they moved into brand new Fenway Park, where they still play today.

In 1918, the Red Sox won their fifth World Series, thanks in part to a star lefty pitcher named Babe Ruth, who could also hit the 'you know what' out of the ball. Following the 1919 season, Sox owner Harry Frazee sold Ruth to the New York Yankees. For the next 86 years despite the enduring loyalty by Red Sox Nation the team suffered a variety of gut wrenching disappointments and no World Series victories.

After the Babe's exile to New York, thirteen futile years followed including nine last place campaigns. A resurgence began in 1933 when millionaire Tom Yawkee purchased the team, remodeled Fenway Park, and spent money for big name players. Through the 1940's and 50's, the team continually competed for the pennant but they were foiled several times, often by the Yankees. In 1946 they won their first pennant since 1918 but were beaten by the St. Louis Cardinals in the World Series.

They went through another bleak period from the late fifties until the "Impossible Dream" team of 1967; led by Carl Yastrzemski's incredible Triple Crown season. ...
