Ranking Boston Red Sox World Championships from 2004-2018
The Boston Red Sox have won four World Series championships since reversing the curse in 2004. Here’s our ranking of those title teams.
The World Series has begun between the Washington Nationals and the Houston Astros. Baseball’s Fall Classic is always something special in sports. The Boston Red Sox had a very disappointing season, to say the least, but that doesn’t mean we have to sulk about it. There’s another season next year.
The Red Sox have had some great teams and some bad teams. Teams that have won championships and teams that have fallen short. Before 2004, the Red Sox went 86 years without winning a championship. The Sox were always beaten by their arch-rival New York Yankees over the years.
Boston had a lot of close calls before finally ending the drought in ’04. Carlton Fisk‘s home run in the 1975 World Series is a famous moment even though they lost the series to the Cincinnati Reds. The 1986 World Series was a heart-breaker when the Red Sox lost to the New York Mets and the ball went through Bill Buckner‘s legs. Aaron Boone‘s home run in the 2003 ALCS sent the Yankees to the World Series at Boston’s expense.
The Sox have won four championships since 2004. The question is which one is the best one? Is it 2004 when the Sox broke the 86-year curse? How about 2007 when the Sox would win their second championship in four years? 2013 after the marathon bombing and the whole team coming together and winning it for the city? Or last year when Alex Cora was in his first year as manager and they won 108 games and the World Series. We’ll find out here.
