3. Red Sox Will Win World Series
Things are falling into place - Dan Shaughnessy, Boston Globe
It feels like 2004. It feels like 2007.
It feels like the Red Sox are going to the World Series. ...
The Red Sox are a rocket sled on rails. They are going to the World Series.
The Red Sox were riding a hot streak on Sept. 17, when Dan Shaughnessy boldly predicted they'd win the World Series. They had won seven straight, and two straight over the Angels, but that was about the closest the Sox would get to looking like the team to beat. They lost to the Angels that very night, cooled off coming into the playoffs, and got swept by the Angels in the ALDS.
