On clinch day, the Sox produced a small moment that I particularly enjoyed when they executed what was by my count their sixth intentional double-steal of the season. Yowza.

Mike are you at your office? I know I can't see them when I'm connected to my office wi-fi because of the firewalls.

Great summary of the season, Jose. The extra-inning thing is a huge takeaway. They had an absurd number of games going at least 12 innings... That was quite a load on the bullpen. But they won so many of these games because the bullpen shut down the opposition, and bounced back without much difficulty in the following games. That, to me, was one of the most impressive things in the 2017 regular season.

And sorry, but this has been all over the airwaves in the past couple of days and it's been bugging me all along.
For the first time in club history the Sox have notched consecutive division titles.
For the first time in divisional play. Boston was repeat AL champions (and World Champions) in 1915-16, back before the AL had divisions.

Yeah I wasn't sure how to write that up. I would argue I was correct in that it is their first back to back "division titles" but as you note they won consecutive pennants 101 years.

I finally got my pictures edited and cleaned up last night. I'm going to try and update both albums when I get home tonight. The season long album won't change much but hopefully I can get some better pictures of clinch day. Because of my seats I was optimistic I could get a good shot or two of the guys pouring out of the dugout and I think I did. Chris Sale and Rajai Davis are the two guys who look crazy happy. Addison Reed too. Drew Pomeranz, man that dude doesn't smile does he?
