    MLB Network show: The Impossible Dream - Red Sox Nation Begins

    I never heard that but I used to hear a lot of chatter that the Red Sox would move just like the Braves. It wasn't that the wrong team moved, it was that both would go. This whispering became even louder when the Braves moved from Milwaukee to Atlanta. The franchise shifts in the 1950s and...

    What year is your favorite Red Sox season?

    This is my first post ever on SOSH, but if you are of a certain age I don't know how you could ever respond with anything other than 1967. That year changed everything. Yaz had one of the greatest years of anyone ever. Fifty years of boring mediocrity was replaced with young, exciting, and...
