After 50 days and 50 nights in Florida, the Red Sox are finally heading back to Boston and bringing with them a 5-game win streak.
The current Boston sports situation is further proof of just how spoiled we have become as we are on tap for two deep runs from two gutsy teams.
While an offensive explosion is never a bad sight, I honestly found myself rooting for a 1-0 or 2-1 victory like we became accustomed to over the weekend, hoping that Richards would find success in his improbable MLB debut.
Many expected the Red Sox to take at least 3-of-4 at The Trop to open the year, however, few expected Boston to outscore the Rays by just one run in the series.
Rogers Centre opened in 1989, 9 years before Tropicana Field but feels more modern by a factor of 10, while the Trop feels like the Rays bought the lease from Marge Schott.
