Boston Red Sox - 2007 World Series Champions!


Bobby Kielty #2 of the Red Sox pinch hit in the top of the 8th inning in Game 4 at Coors Field. He smashed the first pitch into the left field stands for what turned out to be the game winning hit. Kielty is a "story" unto himself. His career was on the rocks as Oakland released him this past summer. The Sox picked him up and he has been solid off the bench as a pinch hitter and outfield replacement.

The Closah does it again. The Great River Dancer spins 1 1/3 innings to save Game 4 at Colorado last night to win the World Series. This was the 3rd save in the series for Papplebon, who has established himself as the premier closer in baseball.

The Sox Are On Top of the World, Again!

Game 4 starter Jon Lester celebrates with his gal-pal in Colorado with World Series hardware in hand. Lester made some history - he was one of the youngest men to win a World Series Game at 23. At this time last year - Lester was in chemotherapy treatment for cancer. Both he & cancer survivor, Mike Lowell were stars in the Sox clinching game.
