After easily running through the playoffs to the World Series title, the Boston Red Sox went from a really good team to one of the best ever. (Zach Kram; The Ringer)

Even if they didn’t have a perfect roster, the Red Sox did everything perfectly to get that trophy. (Jeff Sullivan; FanGraphs)

We’ve followed this team from the deep winter when we were debating whether signing J.D. Martinez was a good idea. Turns out it was. There were plenty of other stories behind the construction of this championship team. (Alex Speier; Boston Globe)

David Price was brought into the fold far before Martinez. It may have taken him a while to earn the respect he always deserved, but he finally has it and there’s nothing you can do about it. (Ben Lindbergh; The Ringer)

Alex Cora made a lot of good decisions during this season. His desire to bring the celebration to Puerto Rico is another one. (Nik DeCosta-Klipa; Boston Globe)

Speaking of celebrating, let’s just relive that World Series winning game again ... and again and again and again and again. (Jen McCaffrey; The Athletic) ($$)

Mookie Betts wasn’t the biggest hero of the postseason, but he was during the regular season. Does that mean he’s going to win AL MVP? Let’s try to figure that out with more than just a water cooler argument. (Ryan Pollack; The Hardball Times)
