The Greatest Red Sox Team…EVER!!!!

With all due respect to the speech by Curtis Montague Schilling (R-RI) after the 2004 World Series title this truly is the greatest Red Sox team ever.  They laid waste to the American League during the regular season winning a team record 108 games, then blitzed the 100 win second place Yankees in four games, ran through the defending World Series champion 103 win Astros in five games then put the smack down on the two time National League champion Dodgers in five to close it out.

And the lesson here is don’t troll the Red Sox.  When Brian Cashman said only the Yankees could do damage the Sox swept the Yanks at Fenway.  When Aaron Judge celebrated winning one game in the playoffs with “New York, New York” they demolished the Yankees in a record setting fashion in game three and finished them off.  Then when the Dodgers tweeted out “Damage Done” after squeaking out their lone victory they found themselves watching the Sox celebrate on Dodger Stadium turf.

I’m off to celebrate with my parents but for now I’ll leave this as a place to share thoughts and memories.  For me the defining characteristic of this team is the way everyone bought into what Alex Cora was doing.  Starters as relievers (and closers!).  Nathan Eovaldi giving everything and then some.  Blake Swihart never caused a problem despite not really playing much then doing a solid job.  Brock Holt hitting for the cycle then saying all the right things when sitting the next night.
