The Boston Massacre!

MacGregor/Word Press
They say a picture is worth 1000 words.

If so, this is actually a good thing because when it comes to the 0-6 Boston Red Sox, we don't need 1000 words. As of right now, there are only two words to describe the atmosphere in Beantown-- THE DOLDRUMS. So in this post, we'll let the pictures speak (the 1000 words) for themselves.

But first, for the sake of historical purposes, this is the 4th time in their illustrious history that the Boston Americans/Red Sox (est. 1901) began a season 0-6. The Red Sox (1908 - present) began the 1945 season 0-8 and the 1927 season 0-6. Their prior species, who evolved into the current Red Sox, the Americans (1901-1907), began the 1905 season also at 0-6. And if it makes Boston fans feel better, two teams in major league history have begun a campaign at 0-6 and made the playoffs-- the 1974 Pittsburgh Pirates and the 1995 Cincinnati Reds. So keep hope alive Red Sox Nation!


Without any further ado, here is the week that was for the Boys from Beantown (in pictures)--

Although Beantown right now is corporate headquarters for the "Lonesome Roads Club", I still like their chances. I'm still sticking with my World Series prediction: The mighty Philadelphia Phillies 4 - Red Sox 3.

Tough call but we'll see....
