Top 12 Moments of the Red Sox 2008 Regular Season

InGameNow .Contributor IIOctober 2, 2008

Here we are in the post season once again, but the regular season had some very memorable moments. Here’s a few of my favorites.

 

12. Trade For Mark Kotsay Brings His Hot Wife To Town

 

 

 

Need I say more?

 

11. Bill Buckner Returns to Fenway

 

We all know Buckner. Mostly as a punch line, but we know him. Still, he was a great part of this team for a long time, putting up great numbers and contributing to his team every day.

He had that one error, but you can’t blame an entire series on one error; one time the ball goes through your legs. And he has not been treated well by the media, and it has had a terrible toll on the rest of his life.

So what do the Sox do? They bring him back, and the fans give him a huge, extended, standing ovation. There were tears in his eyes as he thanked the fans for how much it meant to him to come back a hero.

No commentary necessary, that says it all. I will mention that I may have had a tear in my eye when I saw it, though it may have been raining on my face.
