I don’t think it’s a mystery to anyone who has been reading my blog for a while that I am a huge Red Sox fan and on Sunday night, my team won the World Series!
It was such a fun season (with the best record in franchise history), but the post-season beat all my expectations. The Red Sox allowed only one game against the Yankees (in one of the ALDS series), one game against the Astros (in the ALCS series), and one game against the LA Dodgers in the World Series. This team has been so much fun to watch.
David Price was outstanding Sunday night, Steve Pearce was on fire, but so were all of the other players really throughout this season! JBJ (Jackie Bradley Jr.) had some really amazing hits. Andrew Benintendi is the king of the left field, and Mookie Betts can’t do anything wrong if he tried. I love how Craig Kimbrel (the closer) owns his pre-pitch pose (check out his Twitter pic!), which numerous people (grown adults, mind you!) in the stands have mocked him for, but he had an absolutely stellar performance this season and he is the youngest pitcher in MLB history to record 300 saves. So hey, whatever works for you, right?
In all honesty, I should list all the players by name here, because I am so freakin’ proud of all of them. Every single player in this team did their part to turn this season into what it was. There was a different guy at every game coming through for everybody else. This is what team sport is all about and the Red Sox are a real team. They never gave up. They always stayed calm and focused until the very end and this is how they were able to make magic happen again this year.
Congratulations, Red Sox!

I thought of you when I Saw they won the World Series!
I should not even leave a comment, as you know I have no clue about baseball and if I had, I Probably should have rooted for the Dodgers….
However, I’m happy that you and your other half enjoyed the games so much!
Now, go catch up on all the episodes you taped so we can discuss them :)
Congrats Red Sox!
Thanks friend (and yes, I am trying to catch up!)
I was sleepily going crazy here in New Hampshire! Love my Mookie and Craig Kimbrel! Cannot forget Pearce or the rest either! What a great season!
Aw, I’m glad your team won. That must have been exciting!!
I know next to nothing about baseball, but I could hear my neighbor screaming so, from bed, I could tell who won. LOL.
I rooted for the Red Sox all year and share your enthusiasm. They had a great year and it was nice that the entire team contributed to the wins, not just a few star players. I visited Fenway Park last year for a tour and will return soon. Enjoy the World Series championship!
