The '13 Boston Red Sox Are World Series Champions!

Thu Oct 31, 2013 3:33 am

When I first joined this forum, I wanted my username to be BOSman, but something went wrong in the process and it told me that the name had already been taken by me. So I resorted to BOStonsox, as I always knew I would love the Boston Red Sox.

Last year, they were so bad, yet somehow I just couldn't hate them enough to change my username. Now, they have completed the greatest worst-to-first story ever! Amazing.

I'm surprised there wasn't an MLB Playoff thread. I was meaning to start one but never got around to it.

But we're World Series Champions!

I'm at a loss for words right now. And I've never been prouder to be BOStonsox!

YYYYYYYYYYYYYEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!

Can we add "World Series Champions" to my username now?

Yes we are.

Glad they finally won it at Fenway.

The Red Sox win the world series and here I am just praying the Yanks get it next year. Congrats to Boston!

Though I was just thinking it's mischief night and the Sox won the World Series. Boy would I hate to be a Boston cop tonight.

Let's Go Red Sox! I am so happy now that I am at a loss for words What a season, and in particular what a play-off - only way of making it any more improbable is if we had tied a game on the bottom of the 9th inning of game 4 of the ALCS after trailing the series by 3 games. A team that never gave up, and always acted like a team. And David Ortiz? The next edition of Merriam-Webster dictionary should come with a picture of Big Papi under the word "Leader".

From a life long Cards fan, congrats to the Sox..

Cards could not hit for squat, and while Boston didn't do much better they got the big hits when they needed 'em. And Big Papi played like a man possessed hitting everything in sight. I have been watching this game for a long time and have not seen a better performance by a single player, and this coming from someone who watched Bob Gibson dominate in the '67 and '68 series.

Well done guys

Classy post! Gotta love the Gibson reference! Of course Yaz was a rookie in that 67 series so to me it's a bittersweet reference.

Bottom line, 2013 was our year!

Amen.

A slight twist/modification to what somebody mentioned following the Red Sox's 2007 Series win (paraphrasing the first 2-lines):

The 2004 World Series win was for our parents & grandparents.

The 2007 World Series win was for us & our generation.


(add-on) This World Series win was for Fenway Park and for those whose lives were impacted by the marathon bombing last April.

Boston needed a major boost in the arm IMHO.

One could say the same, except change the number to 50+, 60+, 70+, whatever. I would never go up to some kid and tell him he's not a true Sox fan because he wasn't born early enough.

I was happy the Sox won finally in 2004. But after going to school in D.C. And having to deal with Boston, Philly and NY sports fans often I prefer when small market teams win unless its of course the teams I like  Red Sox had a great season though and deserve it.

The celebration was pretty good. Not too many arrest but I just never understood the we won, we are happy lets try to start some fires and flip cars thing. We've never had that problem here in Miami. Do we not drink enough or something?

That's gotta be putting a lot of pressure on Theo.

It also helped make a difference that they had a lot of injuries last year and tanked the season post-trade deadline. But he made a ton of good moves - Napoli, Farrell, Gomes, etc. But Theo sure did have a lot of trash to throw out.

A big lesson here is to not try to follow the Yankees' strategy when you've got something better!

Not quite as meaningful in the era of 5 team divisions, but still impressive. (The 1991 Series featured two teams that had finished last the previous year, one in a 6-team division and the other in a 7).
