10 years later, 2004 Red Sox team remains Boston’s most beloved

Winning championships in Boston is nothing like winning in other cities. The city captures both the small city approach of having only one team per sport, but also the large city mentality of playing in a sizable market. Boston has done its share of winning in the 21st century. Each of the four pro teams has lifted its respective championship trophy, and duck boats have been driven...

Keith Foulke, Kevin Youkilis’ Lives, Legacies Changed By 2004 World Series

BOSTON — Keith Foulke could never understand why anyone would shrink from taking the ball in a big moment in the World Series — and not just for the glory. “Well, first of all, the pay is better,” said the man who closed out the Red Sox’s 2004 World Series title. “That was part of it.” When Foulke signed with the Red Sox before the fateful 2004 season, he had the World...

'Sporting News' misses out on Red Sox Iconic Moment

Ben WhiteheadContributing WriterWhen Sporting News released its MLB Iconic Moments piece, it struck me as odd when I came across the Boston Red Sox “moment.” Maybe it’s because I like to erase the 86-year curse from my memory and think of the Sox not as loveable losers, but as the team of the last decade. Three World Series titles will do that, I guess, but I know the history...

Cardinal Way? Game 1 was the wrong way

When the 2013 World Series began Wednesday night at blustery Fenway Park little did we know what the Cardinals had planned for the viewing audience. It was a comedic tribute to the 2004 World Series 10 years after. Mental errors and physical errors. Futility and frustration. Slapstick and silliness. A no-show of startling proportions. The Cardinal Way? No more like a Cardinal...

Koji Uehara’s Eye-Popping Playoff Numbers Very Simliar to Keith Foulke’s 2004 Stats Through ALCS

The Red Sox have already won two World Series championships in the last 10 years, and they can make it three flags with four more wins against the St. Louis Cardinals. If they are able to topple the Cards and win the World Series, there will be at least one undeniable similarity that all three teams will have shared. One of the most impressive things about all three teams — 2004...

Are Brawls Good For Baseball?

Are brawls good for baseball? I’d say yes they are, it is sometimes a necessary evil.  It’s a way for players to police themselves and take matters into their own hands.  There has been early talk to ban them or increase penalties for hitters that charge the mound. That is way wrong. If pitchers have no fear of a very quick whooping what is to stop them from drilling even more...

Keith Foulke Couldn’t Enjoy Red Sox 2004 World Series Win For Years

ESPN Boston: When the 2004 World Series team reunited Tuesday at Fenway Park, Keith Foulke threw the ceremonial first pitch to Jason Varitek, who playfully re-enacted the moment he leaped into Foulke’s arms after the Boston Red Sox closer had fielded a comebacker and flipped it to first for the final out of that magical October. That’s a moment, Foulke said this week, he couldn’t...
