Red Sox Are the Team of the Decade
In addition to river dancing in his spare time, Jonathan Papelbon also doubles as a proctologist. Hadn’t you heard? As for the Red Sox, though the Yankees have been more of a consistent winner in the decade, it is Boston, not the Yanks who have won the coveted World Series trophy. Two titles in four years makes the Red Sox the team of the decade. I posted all my thoughts on the World Series at FanHouse and will direct you to them. Oh yeah, I’ve also been waiting seven months for this, but I told you the Red Sox were going to win the World Series! Remember the baseball preview? I was also one of only two AOL Sports experts to pick the Red Sox to win it all before the playoffs began. If I had a third arm, it’d be patting myself on the back right now.
Anyway, here were some of my thoughts on the World Series:
- Red Sox are the team of the decade
- Papelbon should have been World Series MVP
- Eight day layoff did hurt the Rockies
I’d also like to give props to commenter and contributer Alan for winning our bet on the Diamondbacks, and for his shrewd 25:1 bet on the Indians to win the World Series before the year started, and ditto for the D-Backs at 60:1. Though I told him all along not to get his hopes up since the Red Sox would win it all, he proved he knew what he was doing.
