'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...

Your Morning Dump...where Uehara goes all in

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here... highlighting the big storyline. Because there's nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. Let’s not forget, Keith Foulke was never the same. Foulke gave the Red Sox every last ounce of everything he had in 2004 when he was the de facto postseason MVP. He was never remotely as effective...

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...

Rapid Reactions: Never-say-die Sox topple Tigers

The Guru Contributing Writer The struggling Boston bats came alive with one swing Sunday night as David Ortiz cemented himself firmly in Red Sox lore with a dramatic grand slam in the bottom of the eighth inning off Tigers closer Joaquin Benoit.

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...

Theo Epstein's Move to Chicago Recreates Historic Link Between Red Sox and Cubs

The Red Sox and Cubs were long linked by their playoff futility. Until 2004. Now, with one of the biggest architects of that World Series-winning team, Theo Epstein, taking his talents to the north side of Chicago, the link has been recreated. When Keith Foulke fielded Edgar Renteria's comebacker and underhanded it to Doug Mientkiewicz for the final out of that '04 World...
