This Year's Red Sox Have A Chance To Make MLB History
One hundred years ago, the Boston Red Sox beat the Brooklyn Robins (who 16 years later would be known as the Dodgers) four-games-to-one in the 1916 World Series. It was their second straight title—and their third in five years. The best player on the squad was a 21-year-old pitcher named George Herman Ruth (who won 23 games in the regular season, posting a 1.75 ERA). Fast forward to today, as the 2016 Carmine Hose have a shot at making MLB history. If they somehow overcome their questionable pitching and win the 2016 World Series, it will mark the first time a team has won The Fall Classic 100 years apart. Hey, let's do it. Why not?
