Joy in Mudville
Yes, they made it look easy. On Sunday the Red Sox won the World Series. There wasn't much drama as the Sox took command of the field at home and away from start to finish, claiming the title in a relentless four-game sweep.
The American League Championship Series was by far a better contest.
The Sox are no longer the underdogs. Two World Series trophies in four years. The Red Sox Nation now has a different outlook on baseball from its lofty perch.
Thanks to the Red Sox for a season of great memories. We're looking forward to next year.
