The end of the Boston Red Sox as we have known them came on a cool night at Busch Stadium...
That is Harvey Araton in the Times arguing that, having finally won a championship , the Red Sox are now... wait for it... the New York Yankees!
Here's the money quote:
Fenway will continue to be cozy and charming, but how can it be the same without its ghosts? No longer cursed, the Red Sox will be revealed as they truly are, one of the more blessed big-league franchises, with deep-flowing revenue streams and, like the Yankees, an ever-changing cast of well-heeled mercenaries.
Gawker's view is my view: We're happy about the victory because it gives us more BoSox victory pictures to be misinterpreted as something homoerotic.
