Red Sox Win World Series Again

The franchise that couldn't win a World Series can't even lose a World Series game anymore. Yeah, it's been the worst ever playoffs (although the best team in the regular season actually won this time) if you haven't noticed. Series-winning teams, combined, are mathematically going to win 24 games by the end of the playoffs, that's a given. They only lost 4. This is where competition should be fierce and it never was.

Funny, though. I don't have the same hatred of the Red Sox winning the Series that I did of the Yankees winning it. It's still a pretty good story that the longtime cursed franchise who couldn't win has now won it twice in four years. But hell, the city of Boston has a chance to win 2 more championships in the next few months: The Patriots are going to be a major playoff favorite, obviously, if they keep up their ridiculous run through the NFL, and Boston College is currently #2 in the BCS. Lots could change, but that's unbelievable.

This was a dreadful playoff race. And, since my Cubbies couldn't break the curse, I guess I'm glad the best team won. I'll take the Mike Hester stance for once. If anyone was going on last year's improbable win by the Cardinals, and thinking that the National League was getting better should look no further than this past season to further denounce that claim.

If any of the NL playoff teams had been in the AL they wouldn't have come close at all to making the post season. When the most wins and least wins is only seperated by an 85-90 spread, you know something stinks.

To prove even further how uninteresting the post season was this year, look no further than the NY Yankees and A-Rod still making the headlines over the Red Sox winning again. Get pissed all you want, Sox Nation, but the A-Rod and Yankees Manager meetings were more interesting than anything going on in the ball games.
