Don’t Count Boston Out

Everyone reading this knows the Indians just defeated the Boston Red Sox, 7-3, to take a commanding 3-1 series lead. But we all know what happened in the 2004 ALCS, and the World Series that followed. That year the Red Sox came back from the largest possible deficit, down 3-0, to the New York Yankees no less. Any team that did that can do what it takes to get to the 2007 World Series. This time, they only need to win 3 straight, not 4, and, while the Cleveland Indians are a good team, they are not the New York Yankees.

The odds are still against Boston. It is unlikely there will be another miracle. But there certainly could be. The Red Sox have bequeathed to baseball an atmosphere of hope, and the Colorado Rockies of 2007 haven’t hurt that atmosphere any. What the Red Sox did in 2004 will be good for baseball as long as baseball lasts. Games … and series … are never over till they’re over. Fans on both sides can enjoy every moment of every game.

Now, do the Sox have another miracle run in them?

Don’t count them out.

    2004 was not a miracle. It was a great group of guys that didn’t want to dissapoint each other.

    This year we have lazy brats that don’t care if we win just as long as they get paid so it would be a waste of time to put any energy into thinking Kevon Youkilis, Dustin Pedroia and company will actually start giving an effort.

    Lugo, Drew, Youkilis, Pedroia, etc… all need to be replaced next year.

    Different team, definitely. But all they need are 3 straight wins.

    It is not happening with this group of guys. It just isn’t.

    I am almost positive you are right. Almost. 2004 will always mean there is hope. It may be harder for a disappointed Boston fan to see that than a neutral fan like myself. That said, it looks like a Colorado-Cleveland World Series.
