Here we are again my friends, the Red Sox are back in the World Series and they’re standing across from a familiar foe. In a rematch of the 2004 Series, Boston and the St. Louis Cardinals would duel it out for the Commissioner’s Trophy once again.
This time things were different, in the meantime, the Cardinals added the highest piece of silverware to their cabinets and had a new level of fight. In their first clash, the Red Sox steamrolled St. Louis on their way to burying the Curse of the Bambino with a 4-0 sweep. The Cardinals hadn’t forgotten their last run-in with Boston and were ready to make it a challenge for the Sox.
