SOX are World Series bound!!!

When Alex Cora was hired last fall as the new Red Sox manager, instead of being concerned about his salary, etc, what he was most concerned about was having a plane full of supplies sent to his hometown in Puerto Rico. Alex Cora is a great manager.  He is generous, selfless, smart, very humble, and he is a former Red Sox shortstop.

We all knew right from the start of this season that this was going to be a very special team… great defense, powerful bats, good pitching, a heart attack inducing closer, and no big egos on this team.

108 wins during the regular season.  The Red Sox are indeed a very special team this year!

The Red Sox beat the Yankees in the ALDS 3 games to 1.

The World Series begins next Tuesday… Win or lose, I love this team!

GO SOX!!!! 💙⚾️❤️

 

*Update… The Dodgers just clinched the NLCS and have punched their ticket to the World Series. That means, two former Red Sox players (Alex Cora & Dave Roberts) will be managing the two teams playing in the World Series this year. That’s pretty cool! I love Dave Roberts, but I’m still rooting SOX!
