Red Sox: Team Of The Decade

With all the excitement of the Yankees going down in the ALCS, another event over the weekend assured the Red Sox a unique spot in baseball history. When the Phillies fell to the Giants on Saturday, it insured that Boston would be the only team to win two World Series Championships in the first decade of the 21st Century. The Carmine Hose averaged 92.4 wins over the ten-year period and made the post-season six times—finishing third only twice in the toughest division in baseball. So—all things considered—I'd say our Olde Towne Team can legitimately lay claim to the title of Team of The Decade.
