Okay, so last season wasn't the greatest for the Red Sox. Not
only did they not win the World Series - they weren't even a playoff contender.
In the AL wild card race, the Red Sox blew a 9-game lead, and with it, their
99.7% chance of making the playoffs. They fell to the Baltimore Orioles (who
have the greatest
winning reputation), and thus 2011 was left in the past.
