The Boston Red Sox won the 2018 World Series 4 games to 1 culminating a historic season in which they set a team record with 108 wins. No matter how good they were BoSox fans, including myself, knew anything could happen in the playoffs and going through two 100 win teams and an excellent Los Angeles Dodgers team gave us plenty to worry about. Still they only lost three games en route to the championship. That really spoke to the talent they put on the field and to first year manager Alex Cora. Mookie Betts, J.D. Martinez, Chris Sale, playoff heroes Jackie Bradley Jr., Stephen Pearce, Joe Kelly and David Price and the rest of the roster from top to bottom helped put up "W" after "W" . This was a fun team to watch and deserves all the accolades coming their way. I really enjoyed this season. It was great to watch a team dominate like they did and be able to bring home the trophy.
I do want to give props to the Los Angeles Dodgers. Considering how tough some of those games were to include the historic game three it is hard to believe Boston won 4-1. That is a testament to how good the Dodgers are. They just ran into a better team but good on them for making their second straight World Series appearance and how hard they played.
I know I'm late on this but travel for work threw me off the last two weeks and I actually thought I'd already posted something. My bad. Most will look upon the Red Sox and us Boston fans as having more than enough championships. I really don't take them for granted. The 2004 Championship ended years of frustration. Growing up watching Yaz, Rice, Tiant, Clemons, and others never get there was so hard as a fan. 2004 was more than a championship - it was how it all went down. That was a fun team who overcame the unbelievable to beat the Yankees and breeze through the World Series. While the last three championships will never be that team they are just as special and as a fan I was very excited for this team's championship. GO BOSOX!
