1917: Chicago White Sox
1918: Boston Red Sox
2004: Boston Red Sox
2005: Chicago White Sox
There wouldn't be too many people still around who can remember the Red Sox last World Series win back in 1918. Even that great Bostonian, JFK the First, would have been less than 18 months old when they did it. The question now is whether Boston can make it a double: the Red Sox today, and the junior senator from Massachussetts (JFK the Second) in the presidential election on Tuesday?
A great, and concise, comment on the Red Sox win at guff.szub.net:
Whew. We must have just been through the best championship series week in years, maybe all time. Do I feel sorry for Yankees supporters? Nah. Fantastic comeback by the Red Sox.
Nonetheless I will be going for the Cards. Game one starts at Fenway Park in about an hour. Could this all be a big letdown?
My pick for the series: St Louis 4 Boston 1.
