Greatest team in Red Sox history

“There’s no question in my mind, that this is the greatest team in Red Sox history.”

Red Sox Pres. Sam Kennedy

The 2018 Boston Red Sox were the best team in Baseball during the regular season and also were Baseball’s best team in the Post Season. The Red Sox won 108 games during the regular season and finished in first place, eight games ahead of the New York Yankees. Boston’s run in the Post-Season was incredible. The Red Sox had home field advantage in each of their three Post season Series yet had an outstanding 7-1 record on the road!

Having the best regular season record in Major League Baseball is no guarantee of success in the Post Season. As Hall of Fame Manager Whitey Herzog used to say, “It’s not the best team that wins, it’s the team that plays the best that wins.” The Red Sox were amazing in both the regular season and the Post Season. They have so many good hitters throughout their lineup.

Not only can these men hit, but they also have a terrific approach at the plate. They do not have an all or nothing mentality – home run or strikeout. They drill balls into gaps and still hit their share of home runs. I am hoping that more teams take a similar approach. The Red Sox have fine pitching, too, and they make big plays in the field.

Were they the best Red Sox team of all-time? Better than the 2004 Red Sox? As great as the 2004 Red Sox were, they were a Wild Card team that won 98 games, 10 fewer than this 2018 team. The Boston Red Sox now have won four World Series in the last 15 years.
