HE'S GOING TO STEAL HOME! AND THE THROW IS... NOT IN TIME!
Saturday, January 22, 2005
I am hitting myself with a bat for not posting this one sooner! For the first time since you-know-when! THE BOSTON RED SOX HAVE WON THE WORLD SERIES! Let's party like it's 1918!

2002 regular season
2004 World Series
In addition to the change in hairstyle, Damon has reached career highs in home runs, RBI, and times walked. The STATFLASH graph below shows his stats compared to the 2003 regular season. In case you are wondering about the benefits of being walked more often, it means that Damon is getting better bat control, and oftentimes a walk can become the winning run, particularly if he steals second.

Pardon The Commercialization
Pokey Reese: Amazing Homerun Hitter
There have been players that go entire seasons without ever hitting a home run. Most players get a few each season, but you hardly ever see the same player hit two round-trippers in the same game. (In fact, it is not uncommon for the same team to hit two in the same game!)
Pokey Reese took this one step further when he hit two home runs in the same game last May, but only one of them left the park. A bounce off the right field wall sent the ball right past the right fielder, giving Reese enough time to round the bases for an IN-THE-PARK HOME RUN! Later on in the game, Pokey hit one over the fence for his second homer. In-the-park four-baggers are rare enough as it is, let alone in a hitter's park like Fenway.
This is cool.
PLEASE, STOP WHINING
Despite the fact that we finally broke an 86-year-old curse, people still like to find a reason to whine about our Red Sox. One of the most annoying ones is the Nomar Garciaparra trade.
C'mon people, DID ANYONE WATCH THE 2004 REGULAR SEASON? Sure, he did great in the field, but with the bats? No way. Mostly, he just popped up, grounded out, or struck out, and I will admit that I once saw him get a single, but that's it. The man might have been a star in the past, but from what I saw last year, he's just past his prime, so we traded him. Anyway, good luck with the Cubbies.

Curt Schilling: Red Sox Pitching Sensation
With Pedro gone, it looks like Curt Schilling is going to be the biggest Red Sox pitching star for 2005.
Many people say that he "has earned his shillings". After what we saw in the 2004 post-season, I would definitely consider Schilling to be loyal to the team, both on and off the field. He has definitely earned his money.
All of this power hitting earned Ramirez the 2004 MVP award after the Red Sox won their first World Series title since you-know-when!
Manny Ramirez was the definetly the 2004 Red Sox power hitter with 43 home runs (best in the American League) and a .613 slugging percentage, another AL best. Ramirez also became the player with the 5th-most career grand slams in the history of baseball when he hit his 17th on 10 September 2004, surpassing Hank Aaron and Babe Ruth's records!
