Aby-a-Day – November 8: The last time the Red Sox won the World Series… (Friday Flashback)

Everyone compares the most recent Red Sox World Series win to their 2004 victory, but nobody seems to talk about the 2007 World Series. That was Gun-Hee’s World Series.

He got interested again after the Red Sox won the World Series on Sunday night…

This was, you may recall, the series where Jacoby Ellsbury was the first player to steal a base and won everyone in the States a free Taco Bell taco…this may also have been the genesis of “Jacoby” as a name for an Aby.
