I know, I hope a similar fate happens to our Sox, but it won't be easy.

The bright side is, the last two times the Red Sox won the World Series, the White Sox have made the playoffs the following year.

A small consolation, surely, but it's something.

I read only a few and clicked off. The sheer level of nastiness was shall we say off-putting.

From last place in 2012 to World Series champs in 2013. That's pretty damn amazing.

Congrats to the Red Sox. For the most part they were the best team all season and they backed it up in the playoffs. Three titles in a decade is pretty special (unless you're the Yankees maybe).

Just clicked this survey, Red Sox or Cardinals. On a lark, considering that Boston had won, I "picked" Boston.

I usually root for the AL in the post-season. However, I've had my fill of the Red Sox and their fans. Oh well. At least with the Red Sox winning it might close the boastful mouth of one Les Grobstein, who would have been boasting about the superiority of the NL, if the Cards won.

In defense/offense of everyone every fan base everywhere is full of ****heads. Conversely, every fan base everywhere is full of well educated, reasonable people.

It's just funny when people think that a fan base is full of one or the other.

If this had to happen so we could win the Cup, so be it. Don't like it, but it is what it is.

The last four times. Before 2013, the Red Sox last won championships in 2007, 2004, 1918 and 1916.

I've never really thought about it before, but the four most recent seasons in which the Red Sox lost the World Series -- 1986, 1975, 1967, 1946 -- preceded losing White Sox seasons.

Nearly 10% of the Red Sox roster was on the White Sox roster at the start of the 2013 season.

Thornton made the world series roster but it looks like he will be gone after this season. Peavy will go into next season as their 5th starter unless they trade him offseason.

The team with the 2nd highest payroll in the AL won the World Series? Shocking!
All is right with the world according to ESPN. I'm sure they're still a little irked that their two favorites - the Red Sox and Yankees - have only won 4 WS titles in the last 10 years.


Oh, and I'm glad the Red Sox won because the Cardinals have such smug fans. We all know that Red Sox Nation doesn't have smug fans.


This is the 8th World Series title for Boston. They're only one behind the A's now on the all-time list.
