Well, everyone, there’s just a week of 30-team baseball left. I can hear your heart drop from here. It’s very sad, I know. The end is nigh, at least for 20 other teams.

  • After winning the AL East pennant, it seems like the one word that was used the most is “redemption”. It’s been two long, awful years, but the Red Sox are truly back. (Red Sox make Fenway friendly again)
  • Nothing’s cooler than coming out of the bullpen to a live rendition of your trademark song. Nothing. (No. 42 retired forever)

Well, yeah, that’s pretty much true.
