What a great year for the Red Sox. That was an unbelievable ride, dating back all the way to the off-season. It seems like ownership and management had a plan immediately after losing to the Astros in last seasonís playoffs. Sometimes itís less about acquiring the big name, and more about finding the right guy that fits your team. After each loss this postseason, the team didnít flinch, but rather seemed more determined to win and beat the will out of their opponent.
As for who deserved the World Series MVP, I thought Pearce was deserving to be considered. However, David Price should have won for locking down the Dodgers and winning 2 games in the series. He even pitched in relief too. I was so happy for Price, as he seems like a great teammate and a guy anyone would want on their team. I was also happy to see Sale on the mound to close out the series. Sale was great all season, until his injury derailed his run. Unfortunately, he wasnít able to do much during the playoffs, but getting the chance to close it out must have felt unbelievable.
I canít say enough good things about this Red Sox team, other than simply thanking them for a great year.
