The Boston Red Sox – Deserving World Series Champions.

Posted by

Boston Red Sox are amazing. Before the start of the World Series, the Rockies were foreseen to become the champs. It didn’t seem any team can beat the Rockies winning streak. The Red Sox proved to the world how they could be unstoppable once they maximized their full potential. Cheers to the Red Sox players and coaches for a great post-season.

The real credits should be given to Theo Epstein and Red Sox Management Team. Taking a look at the 2204 and 2007 Red Sox rosters, you’ll see what I mean. In 2004, Jason Varitek was the catcher and Kevin Millar at the first base, Mark Bellhorn in second, Orlando Cabrera at shortstop and Bill Muellar at third. Trot Nixon was in the right field, Manny Ramirez in left, Johnny Damon in center and David Ortiz as DH.

This line-up was jampacked with experience and talent. David Ortiz was the youngest player and had been playing in the league for 7 years. Aside from the veterans, the 2004 players were already prepared for the pressure of the post-season baseball like countless times before.

Compared to the 2007 Red Sox team, you will find a big difference. The starting line-up for 2007 were: Jason Varitek, catcher; Kevin Youkilis, first base: Dustin Pedroia, second; Julio Lugo, shortstop; Mike Lowell, third; JD Drew, right field; Jacoby Ellsbury, centerfield; Manny Ramirez, Left field and David Ortiz, DH.

From the 2004 season there were only 3 starters left. The teams change their starting line-up and its called the rebuilding period. Seeing how Red Sox won the championship during the rebuilding period, you’ll have to give credit to their management. For Theo Epstein and tam to keep their star players, Ortiz and Manny, satisfied while finding time to cultivate new talents is a good job by their management team.

It was a great season overall for the Red Sox for dominating the competition during the regular and post season. But bigger awards deserve to be credited to the Red Sox management for putting a great team together that is skilled and worthy for the championship crown.
