95 Years in the Making

Thursday, October 31st, 2013

It’s no secret that the Red Sox have won a couple World Series titles in recent years, however, none of those have been clinched within the walls of Fenway Park. In fact, last night was the first time since 1918 that Boston clinched a World Series in front of their home fans. Some fans waited 95 years to witness a World Series win at home, though most of them haven’t even been alive that long.

The last time Boston clinched a World Series at home gas was just 30 cents per gallon, a loaf of bread just cost 12 cents and World War I was fresh on the minds of every American. The last Red Sox team to celebrate a home World Series win had Babe Ruth on the roster. Even more notably,  the Red Sox traded away Babe Ruth following their 1918 win,  leading to the curse of the Bambino, which ended in 2004. Needless to say, Fenway Park waited for what seemed like an eternity for a World Series clincher at home. That wait came to an end last night as Boston fans witnessed a final out, which gave the Red Sox a long awaited home World Series win over the St. Louis Cardinals.

Red Sox and Braves Miss Playoffs

It’s one of the most monumental meltdowns in baseball history. The Boston Red Sox finished their September collapse, falling out of the playoffs by letting the Baltimore Orioles get two ninth-inning runs in a 4-3 loss, and the Braves fell to Philadelphia 4-3 in 13 innings.

The Red Sox collapse might be the worst fall of the two. Even the fans are severely upset, tweeting and calling into local radio stations expressing their frustrations at managers and players, even at the baseball gods themselves for failing to reach the Ameriam League Playoffs. It could be said that the Red Sox six-month season was wasted in a single night.

“Truly unbelievable. This feels like revenge for 2004 and 2007,” wrote Boston Globe columnist Dan Shaughnessy. “It is as if the baseball gods are punishing Red Sox Nation for hubris and arrogance and good times that seemed so good, so good, so good.”

Both the Red Sox and the Braves are positioned to do very well next year but you can expect big changes for the Red Sox. After Wednesday’s season-ending shock in Baltimore, general manager Theo Epstein said, “We can’t deny this month happened. just because it was preceded by four months of being the best team in baseball. We have to take a very close look at everything that’s not right. We have to fix things and that includes the whole organization.”
