Memories of 2004

I have a confession to make: I didn’t watch Game 4 of the 2004 ALCS. I know this hurts my credibility as a diehard Red Sox fan, but I had reached a point where I just wasn’t sure whether I could deal with the emotion of a loss to the Yankees for the second straight year. It was one of the lowest moments of my entire life as a fan. My grandfather had passed away in 1986 without...

A decade ago, a Curse was broken.

Jorge CamargoContributing WriterPhoto by Boston.com"Swing and a ground ball, stabbed by Foulke. He has it. He underhands to first. And the Boston Red Sox are the World Champions. For the first time in 86 years, the Red Sox have won baseball's world championship. Can you believe it?" were Joe Castiglione's words when the Red Sox won the World Series in 2004, and...

Red Sox 2004 World Series Final Out: Relive Boston’s Triumph (Video)

Red Sox Hall of Fame broadcaster Joe Castiglione put it best. “Can you believe it?,” Castiglione asked after Keith Foulke underhand flipped to Doug Mientkiewicz at approximately 11:40 p.m. on Oct. 27, 2004. The Red Sox, long known for their playoff failures, ended an 86-year World Series drought, broke the vaunted Curse of the Bambino and sent Boston into a frenzy. The Red Sox’s...

Boston Red Sox 2004 World Series Roundup: Celebrate 10-Year Anniversary

It’s crazy to think it’s been 10 years since the Boston Red Sox broke the Curse of the Bambino. Every Red Sox fan undoubtedly remembers where he or she was on Oct. 27, 2004, which, of course, was the night Boston won its first World Series title in 86 years. The Red Sox have won two championships since their 2004 triumph, but there was something extra special about Boston’s...

Shane Victorino Follows in Keith Foulke's Footsteps

The Boston Red Sox have been one of the best teams in baseball for a decade now, although there have been ups and downs. Overcoming “the curse” was partially avoiding bad luck. But, when that is combined with planning—sabermetrics, scouting, and focusing on building a complete team—things can change in a hurry. For the 2004 Red Sox, this meant constructing a workable bullpen...

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...

2004 Boston Red Sox: Where Are They Now

The Boston Red Sox will honor the 2004 World Series championship team Wednesday at Fenway Park, but a lot has changed in ten years for the guys who broke the 86-year curse.

'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...
