When I last visited Fenway in 2016, I took a moment to admire the pennant and World Series title display over the pressbox.
I had not been to Fenway Park since 2002. Then, the most recent trip to the World Series was 1986, which didn’t end well.
I couldn’t see the Red Sox winning a single pennant, much less a World Series then.
So looking at those 3 red flags was special. Not only could I say “I’ve seen them win in my lifetime” but I could arrange them as Gold, Silver and Bronze.
Now I am greedy. I want one Red Sox World Series title to not even get a medal.
It is Clayton Kershaw’s birthday. It may be unfair that some of his post season failures hang over his head, but baseball isn’t always fair.
Meanwhile it is the 100th anniversary of the Red Sox 1918 World Series title. I can not tell you how wonderful it is to never think about that year again as a Red Sox fan.
