Just a few random memories of the season at this climactic, joyous moment. The Mother’s Day Miracle. Buck’s no-hitter. The late-season six-run meltdown against the Yankees. Josh in the playoffs. Paps Riverdancing. There are many, many more. That’s for the next few days.
It seems fitting that this season ends with a victory for Jon Lester and a World Series ring for JD Drew as well. For Lester, who triumphed over a far more trying opponent this past year, this has to have been a monumentally exhilirating experience capped with a moment of immeasurable joy. And for Drew, who battled public sentiment but also the stresses of caring for a sick child, this has to be redeeming.
To those two we offer our heartfelt congratulations, and to the entire team we also say congrats and thank you. What a year you have given us.
