Red Sox Notes

February 19, 2019

Last season, the Boston Red Sox won 108 regular season games and then went (11-3) in post-season play, to win their fourth World Series in this century, one more than the S.F. Giants, who have the second most.

Boston was (7-1) in post-season road games, losing only a marathon, game 3 World Series, aberration game in L.A. , vs the Dodgers in game 3.

It is well documented that the Red Sox went 86 years sans a World Series victory, however, in pretty sharp contrast with the Chicago Cubs, whose drought was 108 years, but never were really that close to a crown (in their lone game with a chance for the title, the Detroit Tigers eased to victory in game 7– 1945 World Series vs them), the Red Sox were gallant in heartbreaking World Series losses to two 108 regular season win teams, the 1986 New York Mets and the 1975 Cincinnati Reds.

 

An example of the Cubs not coming close in World Series play was in 1938 when the vaunted and truly great New York Yankees repeated their 1932 World Series 4 game sweep, vs the Cubs.
