The World Series is set, after the Red Sox offense exploded in Games 6 and 7 to knock the Indians out of the postseason and Boston into the World Series against Colorado. Poor Cleveland though. Haven't their fans suffered enough, in just about every sport?
The central question of Boston's World Series run, though, is bound to be the following: have they become the Yankees? Did the Sox and Yanks do some sort of identity switch at some point in '04 (like in, say, Game 4?) The Yankees, meanwhile, are now owned and run by idiots, as the Sox were for the entire 20th century. Was becoming what they most hated, while incurring the wrath of the whole country outside New England, worth winning a championship and maybe a second? (I'm gonna say most Boston fans would answer "yes.")
The Series starts Wednesday. Watch for the Jub-Jub.
