A Look Back At The Red Sox’s Magical Run to the Championship

Friday, November 1st, 2013

In 2012, the Boston Red Sox finished last in the AL East with a record of 69-93. In 2013, the Sox would win the World Series. How did they manage to turn everything around so quickly? Let’s take a look at Boston’s magical run to the 2013 World Series.

A Managerial Change Was The First Step

The Red Sox were managed by Bobby Valentine in 2012. On the first day of the 2012 offseason, he was let go and eventually replaced by John Farrell. He would come on board as part of a trade with Toronto that saw pitcher David Carpenter come to Boston for Mike Aviles.

The Pitching Got A Lot Better

In 2012, the Boston Red Sox pitching staff was a mess. They would give up 806 runs compared to just over 730 runs scored by the team. Jon Lester, the hero of the 2013 World Series, went just 9-14 while Josh Beckett would go 5-11. In 2013, Beckett was gone and Lester would go 15-8. Clay Buckholtz finished the season 12-1, and the pitching staff would give up almost 150 fewer runs than they did in 2012.

The Offense Stepped Up Too

The Red Sox would score almost 100 more runs than they did in 2012. This would translate into an extra 28 wins that helped Boston go almost wire-to-wire as the first place team in the AL East. Free agent pickup Mike Napoli hit 23 home runs while David Ortiz hit his usual 30 home runs while driving in 100 runs. Jacoby Ellsbury provided speed on the basepaths while Shane Victorino was a steady player who hit nearly .300 for the season.

Team Chemistry Improved Greatly

During 2011 and 2012, there was a lot of infighting, laziness and general apathy toward the game and toward managers Terry Francona and Bobby Valentine. In 2013, it seemed as if the Red Sox had put their beer and chicken days behind them and focused on baseball again. That renewed focus made it easier to play better baseball in a city that follows its team with a rabid passion.

2013 was an amazing year for Boston. They became only the second team in MLB history to go from finishing last in their division to winning a World Series title a year later. With a slimmed down payroll and more of a focus on developing players from within their system, the Red Sox should be primed for another run in 2014.

Gear Up for the 2013 World Series with New Championship Gear

2013-world-series-hats

For true baseball fans, the month of October, and even the first week of November in some cases, should be written off as a complete loss outside of that night’s post-season game. The excitement is so extreme, and the tension in the air is so thick, that it’s all most fans can do to think something other than pitching stats, prior match-ups with teams competing for a World Series appearance, and a whole host of other numbers and decimals that make baseball more a game of math than anything else. For many people across the country, their team is about to take on a high-stakes post-season schedule that could lead to great things at the end of the month.

The time to prepare for these match-ups, and celebrate the victories enjoyed during other World Series match-ups, is now. FansEdge.com has a vast number of World Series merchandise options that are available for virtually every team with a recent appearance in the big dance. Even those fans cheering their team to this year’s World Series will find something that can hold them over and contain their excitement until that last swing of the bat before the 2014 season.

Commemorative Gear and Accessories Keep the Memory Alive

If there’s one thing that the MLB knows about its fans, it’s that they can never have too many commemorative items in their collection immediately after their team wins the World Series. For that reason, Major League Baseball has worked to create officially licensed accessory items and commemorative decorations that serve as a tribute to a team’s hard work not only during that week of the play-offs, but during every week leading up to the big win. Fans will find framed team portraits, commemorative photos of the games themselves, and even limited edition game programs, replicated from the winning game for sale to fans across the country.

We carry each of these items, and many of them celebrate recent World Series wins from years past. In addition to celebrating last year’s four-game game sweep of the Detroit Tigers by the San Francisco Giants, our lineup of commemorative items stretches back to the Phillies’ 2008 win, the Yankees’ subsequent defeat of the Phils in 2009, and every game in between those matchups and today. Of course, we understand that some fans want to do more than just place their pride on a shelf. Many of baseball’s most enthusiastic spectators are looking to wear their pride on their sleeve, quite literally, throughout the year.

If limited edition baseballs, framed prints, programs, pennants, and other items just won’t cut it, we have what many fans are looking for instead.

We’ve also got an extensive collection of World Series hats, footwear, and apparel options for children and even babies.

As with our commemorative merchandise, many of our apparel items can celebrate “back” World Series wins from the 2000s through present day, giving fans of prior World Series teams an opportunity to replace old or lost apparel. These options are also a great way to fill in the gaps and find items that might have been hard to find at other retailers across the country.

With a variety of sizes, styles, and World Series games to choose from, our fans are likely to find something for the entire family at FansEdge.com. That’s made even more possible by our commitment to both men’s and women’s apparel items, as well as youth options that span from infancy right through young adulthood.

The World Series is Here, So the Time to Stock Up is Now

To avoid being met with post-season baseball games, all without proper attire or collectibles, fans should waste no time shopping our extensive collection of items. We’re sure to have something for every team, every game, and every unique taste among Major League Baseball fans across the country.

They’ve waited six long years, but now, guess who’s back? That’s right; the Boys of Beantown are back in The Fall Classic to face 2011 World Series Champion St. Louis Cardinals and we have all the great Boston Red Sox ALCS Champs Gear you want to cheer them onto World Series Title #7.

It took six games against the Detroit Tigers, but in the end, Boston came away with AL Pennant Lucky Number 13 and are headed to take on St. Louis in a rematch of the 2004 World Series which the Red Sox won. After the notorious 87-year drought between World Championships, the Red Sox arrived in 2004, setting Major League Baseball Records with their World Series Championship. That year, Boston was the first Major League team to win eight straight postseason games in the same postseason — including the four consecutive wins at the 2004 World Series over the same St. Louis Cardinals ball club they now face nine years later.
