1903, 1912, 1915, 1916, 1918,
1946, 1967, 1975, 1986,
and now, 2007.
The first 5 were years the Red Sox won the World Series.
The next 4 were years the Red Sox lost the World Series (in 7 games each time!).
The last one was (finally) another win.
The Red Sox are 6-4 in World Series. In the last 5 World Series, they’ve won 16 games and lost 16 games, but won only 1 of those 5.
There was no World Series in 1904 or 1994, so the Red Sox won the 1st, 9th, 12th, 13th, 15th and 100th. Yes, 2004 was the 100th World Series.
The Red Sox made it, but lost in the 43rd, 64th, 72nd and 83rd.
This year is the 103rd.
So who’ll win?
The Colorado Rockies have only been around since the early 90s, and have only made the playoffs once. They’ve never been in the World Series. This will be their first time there. The entire Midwest must be thrilled.
It’s good to see a team like the Rockies make it.
Of course, I’m cheering for the Sox, but it wouldn’t be so bad to see the Rockies win. Either way, it’s a good story to me. I guess that’s why I’m not quite as emotionally into this World Series as the last one. That, and the fact that it’s been only 3 years since the last Red Sox win, instead of 86.
