Red Sox Bid "Good Riddance" To Dismal 2014

Baseball seasons don't get much more forgettable that 2014—with the possible exception of 2012. As the Red Sox put their embarrassing 71-win season in the rearview mirror, we can only hope that the "even-odd" year mojo continues. Last-To First-To Last-To First Again? Let's look on the bright side. Our International Editor Mark Lawrence has sent us photos from Sydney that prove it's already 2015. So, pop some leftover bubbly from 2013 and look to Opening Day 2015just 95 days away. Gone are all the sordid memories of the year past: the Grady Sizemore tease; the "return" of Stephen Drew; the Raiders Of The Lost Offense; the disappointing play of Will Middlebrooks and Jackie Bradley, Jr.; two-thirds of Dustin Pedroia; the departure of Jon Letserall of it gone forever into the dustbin of Red Sox history. Good riddance, 2014—and don't let the cosmic door hit you in the butt on the way out.
