Since the Red Sox didn’t make it into the Series this year, I’m overjoyed that my birth city team has won. I’m sorry, but the Tampa Bay Rays fans were not worthy of a championship. What is this business of ringing cow bells in an enclosed stadium anyway? And as Charlie Pierce said in today’s Boston Globe “Obama draws bigger crowds buying the paper every morning than the Rays did in the middle of a pennant race.”
The Red Sox re-signed Tim Wakefield. I assume Curt Shilling will be retiring. I expect more changes this winter.
