The Boston Red Sox Did It

This of course does not mean tonight. They didn’t do it tonight in Cleveland, falling behind in the ALCS, 2 games to 1. “The Boston Red Sox did it” is of course the rallying cry of the Arizona Diamondbacks. Down 3-0 in Colorado, the D-Backs’ only source of hope is the history of the 2004 playoffs, when the Boston Red Sox kept their October run alive one game at a time after being down 3 games to none in the ALCS … to the Yankees of all teams. Not much hope there, right? Never done before and it surely couldn’t be accomplished against the guys in pinstripes. But all sports fans know the Crimson Stockings kept winning one game at a time until they completed the biggest series comeback in Major League postseason history, eliminated the Yanks, and moved on to the World Series.

Which they swept in 4 against St. Louis.

After they were down 3-0 they never lost again, winning 8 consecutive games to sweep to the title.

Arizona is surely invoking the Boston miracle. I think they are telling themselves, Tonight we start an 8-game winning streak. The Boston Red Sox did it.

    The Red Sox comeback in the 2004 ALCS was one of the greatest sports moments I’ve ever witnessed. And a great side-effect of it is that they did it against the Yankees. Which means that every time a playoff team goes down 3-0 in a best-of-7 series, the 2004 ALCS is brought up, and extra “baggage” is added to the Yankees. 🙂 It’s happening, too, because the Yankees players and fans don’t have the same swagger they did a few years ago, where they always believed that they would somehow win (and they usually did). I was in New York on vacation this summer, and talked to some workers in a Yankees clubhouse store, and they were not confident at all. And you could see it in the 2007 ALDS against the Indians. The Yankees dynasty may be over.

    Yes, I’m a Red Sox fan. Have been since 1987.

    And you are rightly proud. An amazing comeback that means every playoff team will always have hope, no matter how far down they are. This was great for baseball.
