...or as my diehard Fenway friends of yore, John Shotwell and Peter Harrold, used to call them, the Red Flops... and that was decades before Bill Buckner had his notorious mishap at first base in 1986.
What few seem to have noticed is that Boston has just won its third World Championship in the past ten years... that's approaching dynasty status!
And one other thing... the Red Sox success this season after finishing last in their division a year ago means that their 2012 manager, Bobby Valentine, will never manage another major league game in his life!
Valentine is a pompous blowhard. He proclaimed that he would win the pennant with this Boston team; (see CBS Boston 10/22/13).
