    Isn't it just a simple matter of not wanting to legitimize incorrect grammar? That's legitimately what goes through my mind.

    Or maybe there's something ironic about the use of "Is" that I am missing?

    The Red Sox continue to roll on in an incredible 2018 season...by winning the AL pennant.

    115 wins (so far).

    On to the World Series! :D

    To my chagrin, it appears 2018 is the Red Sox year. Everything is falling into place, playing well and getting lucky. That combination is hard to beat, but you still have to win four more games. If that happens, perhaps the competitive juices will finally get going within Hal Steinbrenner and remembers, he is his father's son and to stop worrying about the luxury tax threshold.

    Have to say, Boston looks about as good as anyone could expect heading into the World Series. Haven't always been a Red Sox fan, but I have sure enjoyed watching them for at least the past 30 years. I think the team they have right now is probably better than all of the championship Red Sox teams during that stretch. It sure would be cool to see them get their fourth championship in the 21st Century this year!

    It'll be blown out of the water if the Yanks end up adding Machado, Kershaw, and Corbin (like all my Yankee fan friends keep telling me is going to happen)! :D

    I don't see that happening, but I can see them adding 2 of those players. I think Kershaw stays with the Dodgers.

    Even going back through Red Sox history, I believe that only their 1912 (105-47) and 1946 (104-50) teams boasted higher regular season winning percentages, although in 152 and 154 games played, rather than the current 162 game season format.

    Hopefully, Boston can cap it with a World Series Championship against the winner of the Dodgers/Brewers NLCS!

    CHEERS! :)

    Just don't expect any guest appearances by Babe Ruth's ghost, except maybe in MLB sanctioned flashbacks! ;)

    I grew up outside of NYC in Connecticut then I could count the number of Red Sox fans on my hand. Today, after 2004, there are Red Sox fans everywhere, where did they all come from?;)

    I don’t mind the Red Sox as they always lose to the Mets in the World Series.

    Casey Stengel was in the Robins / dodgers in 1916. There’s the Mets Yankees connections
