Just an obligatory post from a life long Sox fan. When I was a kid it was almost religion (I devoured every box score and knew all the batting averages, home run and RBI stats).
After the 1986 World Series I changed out of self-preservation, and maybe grew up a little. But anyway, congratulations to a team of grinders. A real T.E.A.M.
I think Alex Cora is great. A classy and knowledgeable guy (and recently former player) who somehow in his first year got a group of guys to buy in and follow him with no questions asked.
