The Boston Red Sox won their fourth World Series title since 2004 on Sunday night and in the process became the 11th Boston team to win a title since 2001.
Holy city of champions.
So let’s have some fun and rank all 11 championship teams. Disclaimer – I’m from Boston and have lived through all these moments. I also lived through the years when the Patriots were so bad their home games were often not on local TV, I remember watching Bill Buckner having that ball go through his legs, and I watched a Celtics team win 15 games in the 1996-97 season. So there have definitely been some dark days in Boston sports.

Boston only had to wait three years for its second World Series title of the 2000s, which proved to be a lot better than the 86-year wait that it went through before finally winning it all in 2004. The 2007 team came close to losing to the Indians in the ALCS before rolling to big wins in Game 6 and 7 at home to advance to the World Series. The Red Sox opened that up with a 13-1 over the Colorado Rockies and wrapped up the sweep in Denver with a 4-3 win in Game 4. Suddenly the Red Sox winning a World Series didn’t feel all that foreign of an experience.
