Boston Red Sox Franchise History
The Boston Red Sox were established in 1901 and had instant success. The Red Sox won their first World Series Championship in 1903 and added further titles in 1912, 1915, 1916, 1918. The Red Sox’s star player was Babe Ruth and the team declined after he was sold to the New York Yankees. The failure of the Red Sox to win a World Series from 1918 was known as the curse of the Bambino with the Red Sox seemingly unable to add to their list of Championships despite having a number of opportunities to do so. The curse finally ended in 2004 when the Red Sox came back from three games down to defeat the Yankees in the 2004 American League Championship Series and go on to win the World Series. The franchise added another World Championship for good measure in 2007. The Red Sox had a disastrous season in 2012 and will be looking to rebound during the 2013 MBL schedule.
Boston Red Sox Offensive Star: Dustin Pedroia
Dustin Pedroia was drafted in the second round of the 2004 MLB draft. Pedroia played three seasons in the minor leagues before being promoted to the Majors in 2007 as second basemen. Pedroia took the league by storm and won the 2007 American League Rookie of the Year Award. As a sophomore Pedroia took his game to another level. He made the first of his three All-Star appeances and won the Silver Slugger, Gold Glove and American League MVP awards. The second baseman has been a rare shining light for the Red Sox in recent seasons despite suffering a number of injuries.
Boston Red Sox Defensive Star: Jon Lester
Jon Lester was selected with the 57th overall pick of the 2002 MLB draft. Lester was called up to the majors in 2006 but was diagnosed with a treatable form of cancer during the season. He returned to the side in 2007 and was a member of the World Series winning side. Lester had an excellent 2008 season which was highlighted by a no-hitter against the Kansas City Royals. Lester continued his good form in 2010 and 2011 and was rewarded with selection for the MLB All-Star game. The left hander had a disappointing season in 2012 and will be desperate to reclaim his position as the franchises leading pitcher during the 2013 MLB schedule.
Boston Red Sox Manager: John Farrell
John Farrell joined the Boston Red Sox as a coach in 2007 ten years after finishing his playing career. Farrell thrived as pitching coach at the Red Sox and was named manager of the Toronto Blue Jays in 2011. At the conclusion of the 2012 MLB schedule it was announced that the Blue Jays had released Farrell from his contract so that he could become the new manager of the Red Sox. Farrell has a tough task in front of him rebuilding a roster that was one of the worst during the 2012 MLB schedule.
