B-slapping the Chisox

The events unfolding on Chicago’s South Side over the last few days have, to my recollection at least, constituted the most dominating series performance by any Red Sox team, ever.

David Ortiz hit a two-run homer, and J.D. Drew and Bobby Kielty ended long homerless droughts to back Julian Tavarez’s first win since late June as the Boston Red Sox finished a four-game sweep of the Chicago White Sox with a 11-1 victory Sunday…The Red Sox outscored Chicago 46-7 in the series, dropping the White Sox to 18 games under .500. Boston has won four in a row, improved baseball’s best record to 80-51 and increased their lead over second-place New York to 7 1/2 games in the AL East.

Emphasis mine. Now bring on the (cough, slumping, cough) pinstripes.

  1. the most dominating series performance by any Red Sox team, ever.

    well, boston did sweep the cards in the 2004 world series. I forget the scores of all four games, but, considering the stakes, you may want to rethink that claim, Jasper.
