No more taunts of "1918". The suffering souls of Bill Buckner, Grady Little, Mike Torrez, Johnny Pesky, and Denny Galehouse are released from Boston Baseball's Hall of Pain. The 2004 Red Sox are champions because they engineered the greatestcomeback in baseball history when they won four straight games against the hated Yankees in the American League Championship Series. It was baseball epic, an event for the ages putting the Sox into a World Series that was profoundly anticlimatic. En route to eight consecutive postseason wins, the Sons of Tito Francona simply destoryed a St. Louis Cardinal team that won a major league-high 105 games in 2004. Statues - to be placed near those of Samuel Adams and James Michael Curley - are already on order for Messers, Schilling, Martinez, Lowe, Foulke, Damon, Ramirez, Ortiz, Bellhorn, Varitck, Caberera, and the rest of the 2004 Red sox.
