The Greatest Season Ever

That's how Sports Illustrated described the Red Sox' 2004 season on the cover of their Sox commemorative edition. Shouldn't a team actually have to win their own division before they get that label? It takes a lot to make me sympathize with the Yankees, but they did beat the Red Sox in the fairest test of all: a 162-game season. I guess those 162 games were irrelevant and the seven games that the teams played in October were the only meaningful ones they played all season.

(My bias as a Braves and college football fan infects just about everything I write.)
