This picture is awesome.
The ump calling him safe with generous, if not asked for, assistance from three Red Sox, is a stunning split second moment to capture in a photo.
It reminds you: it's a game, a child's game played by adults, and this team played with a boyish glee that I don't ever remember seeing in any other team. Team! Their shared love of the game, their thrill to have the privilege of playing it with like-minded teammates, made this
ball club bigger than the sum of their parts. And this unmeasurable mojo, more than any measurable sabermetric, is what I think pushed them over the line from very good team, to champions.
This photo is going up on the wall.
