Last night, our Boston Red Sox baseball team won the American League Eastern Division title, one year after coming in last in the same contest.
This has been an amazing year for Red Sox fans, and I couldn’t let this day go by without a short comment here.
The Boston Red Sox clinch the American League Eastern Division title – Sept. 20, 2013
I realize there are fans among my readers here who root for other teams all over the country and Canada. That’s fine. I don’t even know yet which other teams are in contention for the Playoffs. I’ve been so preoccupied with the Red Sox and their amazing year of 2013, qualifying for the playoffs after coming in dead last in 2012.
We had some ups and downs over this season. When we traded away shortstop Jose Iglesius, I was heartbroken. That guy was magic in my eyes. He still is. I would love to have him back. However, we now have Stephen Drew at shortstop, where Iglesius once was, and I have only high regard for Drew.
Our team has gone through major changes in the past year, and between the managing skills of our new manager, John Farrell, and the excellent decisions by the head office staff and owners, not to mention that we have Pedro Martinez on our payroll helping with the pitching, etc., I guess our stars have been aligned to be in this situation.
The next few weeks will tell the tale – if we can go all the way again. The last time we won a World Series was in 2007 under Terry “Tito” Francona, and before that in 2004. I think it’s time we got back into the winner’s circle and showed what the Red Sox are made of.
Big cheers for our team and good luck in the Playoffs!

It’s in every one of us to be wise;
Find your heart, open up both your eyes.
We can all know every thing without ever knowing why.
It’s in every one of us, by and bye.
