Description
Any Red Sox fan or baseball buff will tell you: The Sox haven't won a World Series since 1918. Certainly they've come close more times than they wish to remember. Did the unorthodox sale of the greatest baseball player who ever lived cause the Red Sox to be cursed forever?

With a wry sense of humor, Dan Shaughnessy traces the frustrating history of the Red Sox since Babe Ruth went to the Yankees. Here, he sheds light on some classic baseball conundrums -- from Johnny Pesky's so-called hesitation throw in the 1946 World Series, to the horrifying dribbler that slithered between Bill Buckner's legs in the 1986 series against the Mets, and the expulsion of Roger Clemens in the final game of the 1990 League Championship Series against the Oakland A's. Lively and filled with anecdotes, this is baseball folklore at its best.
