Ted Williams never did it. Not Carl Yastrzemski. Not Carlton Fisk. Not even Pedro Martinez and Curt Schilling, who ended The Curse nearly a decade ago.
The Red Sox tied it up in another wild one. Here are five things you missed from game 4.
In Game 2 of the 2013 World Series, the Red Sox took a page out of the Cardinals’ defensive Game 1 nightmare and allowed the Cardinals to get out of Boston with a split.
It seems that the World Series has shrunk and shriveled over the years to the point where it is a folksy little event to all except those associated with the two teams participating.
David Huff was ineffective as he have up nine runs on Saturday. The Red Sox continued their dominance over the Yankees, taking three of three games so far this series.
Despite all of his baggage, A-Rod has become a rallying figure for the Bombers on the field and in the dugout.
John Lackey held down New York’s resurgent offense as the Boston Red Sox broke a three-game skid by beating the Yankees 6-1 on Saturday.
Adding to the intrigue: Lackey is scheduled to start Saturday’s game against Rodriguez and the Yankees in Boston.
The brash and supremely confident manager was fired on Thursday, the day after the finale of a season beset with internal sniping and far too many losses.
The Red Sox don’t mesh together anymore, and when they face the better teams in baseball — such as the rival Yankees — they simply don’t have enough to compete.
It’s fair to say Yankees fans don’t want to see CC Sabathia pitching elsewhere next season. Especially not with the Boston Red Sox.
Has baseball actually gotten over the drug and alcohol problems of its past? It’s time for those in charge to bring major baseball into the 21st century and adopt stronger clubhouse policies.
Revelations following the Red Sox’s famous 2011 collapse paints an image of a ballclub that betrayed their manager and their own professional pride.
The Red Sox’s forthcoming decision to fire manager Terry Francona makes little sense given his involvement in the franchise’s successes and managerial overall record. I can’t imagine who could fill the shoes of one the game’s best.
CC Sabathia finally conquered the Red Sox on Tuesday night. The Yankees’ ace notched his first victory against Boston this season, one that could spur on the Bombers.
