The Red Sox, who had 10-1 odds to start the season, beat the Dodgers 5-1 in Sunday's Game 5 to win this year's World Series and Boston's third title in the past 12 seasons. The win, which was Boston's 119th since Opening Day, capped off one of the best seasons of all time. This year, they were overmatched against a Red Sox team that finished the regular season with a plus-229 run differential, losing the finale by a 5-1 score.

As one of the league's earliest success stories, the Boston Red Sox, originally called the Boston Americans, won the first-ever World Series in 1904, and continued to dominate for over a decade.

Live stream: Boston's CBS affiliate, WBZ, will carry a stream online. We will never know how many we lost. The nationwide fan base that once went generations without a championship now has a wealth of success to celebrate from a franchise staking a claim as the 21st century's pre-eminent baseball powerhouse.

"We'll talk about it later on", Cora said. They were four outs away when the Red Sox's Jackie Bradley Jr. hit a home run against closer Kenley Jansen for a 1-1 tie.

"We're in a good mental space right now". Then the Sox retaliated by playing the song ― also a tradition on the loudspeaker after Yankee home games ― when they eliminated the Yankees in NY.

"The visiting team always pays the bill", he said. They're still waiting to do damage at Dodger Stadium.

Given the talent level of the Boston roster and Dombrowski's flexibility to improve it, the Red Sox should be in contention for another one of these celebrations one year from now. "I'm three cups of coffee deep", Roberts said. Just look up "Mets Wilpon's poorly run" on your favorite search engine and you will be flooded with thousands and perhaps millions of columns on how public perception of the Mets owners is poor.
