Recaping The 2018 World Series Winning Season For The Boston Red Sox
  

By MyFm's John Wilbur - The Boston Red Sox have won the 2018 World Series Championship!!! For the 9th time in team history, the Red Sox can call themselves World Series Champions. This year was a bit different though it came with question marks. Like would the bull pen be able to last, is a young team like this ready for the bright lights of Fenway with a new younger manager just a few years out of playing for the very same team? Will J.D. Martinez bring a spark to the line up that it needed after the team the year before hit the fewest home runs of any team in the league? Would this be the year David Price figures it out and pitches a full season and into the play-offs the way a 20 million dollar pitcher should? Will Chris Sale start to fade down the back stretch and will Dustin Padrioa be at second base at all this season? Well the last one ended up playing just one game this year while the rest put all the worries and questions to bay with a World Series Championship. The team would add what now seems to be a couple of key pieces to the roster midway through the year, with Nathan Eovaldi, a journeyman pitcher, who has seen his share of time in the bigs and was trying to work his way back into a rotation. Gold glove candidate Ian Kinsler came in and solidified the infield. The rookie was struggling at third base and they sent Raffeal Devers down to Pawtucket where he finished the regular season before getting called back up in September. The rookie was a huge part of the post season success, hitting a important grand slam and several big hits in the post season. Zander Bogarts had been good to this point so far but Alex Cora said early on he was expecting more from the superstar shortstop and Bogarts stepped up big time with one of the best seasons all around in his carreer. The first year manager Alex Cora trusted in his team and in the solid staff around him including team President Dave Dombrowski who siad after the World Series win that he didn't get involved in everyday line up decisions that's the managers Job. Alex Cora echoed those words, thanking the teams President for allowing him to run his team without interference from above. The outfield of Jackie Bradley Jr., Andrew Benitendi, and the man who should be able to add league MVP to his titles Mookie Betts played incredible all season and the fact the Alex Cora Stuck by JBJ worked out with Bradley Jr. playing a huge part in the ALCS and the World Series at the dish. The Season started with the team getting a record breaking 17 wins in a row after loosing game one and from there they never let off the gas pedal. There were a few hickups along the way but things worked out in the end and the best hitting team in baseball cruised to 108 regular season wins the most in franchise history. Than came the play-offs first it was New York and the Sox took 3 out or 4 from the bombers to end the season for the pin stripes. Houston would prove to be no match for the boy's from Boston either with the Sox rolling through the Astro's in five games. The once shakey bullpen was now sharp and solidifying wins. The closer Craig Kimbrell was keeping fans on the edge of their seats and Joe Kelly looked like the firey 8th inning guy that started the season with a bang. Eovaldi was solid Eduardo Rodriguez was throwing strikes and Matt Barnes was lights out. In the World Series it seemed as though the Red Sox didn't have a starting pitching rotation and a bull pen the Sox just had a Pitching staff that was all-in and ready to do what ever was needed to win it all, as is evedent by the fact that David Price pitched game 5 and went 7 ininngs after a start and relief apperence in the World Series. How fitting that on the mound in the end was Chris Sale for three outs the final three outs of the 2018 season. Sale was skipped over for the game five start and would have started game six had it gone that far, but there was no need and for the 13th time in team history the Red Sox answered all the questions and they will be bringing the trophy home for a trip through the city on the duck boats. As for the series MVP Steven Pearce the kid who grew up root root rooting for the hometeam it was a dream come true, hitting two home runs in the World Series for the team he grew up loving it doesn't get any better than that!!!!!! Congratulations to The Boston Red Sox your 2018 World Series Champions.
