    November 17, 2018: World Series Giveaways!

    Posted by Christine E. at 11:50 am in Baseball,Giveaways,Holiday,Random Thoughts,Red Sox,Swag Comments (3)

    On December 4th, Shout! Factory and Major League Baseball will be releasing two AMAZING ways to commemorate the Boston Red Sox’s historic regular and postseason, leading up to the pinnacle of success: Their 4th World Series championship in 15 years.

    These keepsakes are a must own for any Red Sox fan–and Boston Red Thoughts if offering you the chance to win them for your very own BEFORE they are released to the general public on December 4th.

    I am giving away (1) 2018 World Series Collectors Edition: Boston Red Sox Sets and (3) 2018 World Series Films!!  And YOU get to choose Blu-Ray or DVD formats!

    So, how do you win? I’m glad you asked! All you have to do is share your favorite memory from the 2018 Red Sox Postseason. Of all of the entries, I will select 4 from random and those lucky folks will win one of the above.  Deadline for entry is November 28th at midnight, and is limited to folks living in the US and Canada.

    Some more info on each:

    Dating back to 1943 when the U.S. State Department commissioned Major League Baseball to produce a recap of the World Series for troops overseas, this year’s version of the official documentary The 2018 World Series Film, is available as a Blu-ray+DVD combo pack (with digital copy) and DVD (with digital copy). This 80- minute 2-disc collection has bonus features including regular season highlights, clinching moments, postseason highlights, “How They Got There” featurette and scenic footage from the duck boats at the World Series parade.

    The 2018 World Series Collector’s Edition: Boston Red Sox is a binge-worthy 21 HOURS of Red Sox goodness, on an 8-disc collection on Blu-ray and DVD, which includes all five complete games of the World Series, the pennant-clinching ALCS Game 5 and a bonus disc of the ALDS clinching Game 4 versus the Yankees (this alone is worth the price of this collection!)

    And with the holiday’s coming up, either is the PERFECT gift for that special Red Sox fan in your life (even if that person is yourself!)

    So start sending in those memories, either in the comments sections below, or on Boston Red Thoughts’ Facebook page.  Remember, contest ends November 28th!

    Good Luck!

      Well, the lost Game 3, and I think we all just had a feeling that we weren’t going to win the game based on who we had on the field, but nevertheless, we continued watching all 18 innings. My eyes actually hurt the next day. So, yes, my favorite moment was from the game we lost. What was it? Well, it was watching Nathan Eolvaldi pitch the remainder of the game in relief. Baseball is always slighted as being a sport for the non-athletes and the non-tough guys, only by those who’ve never played the game, of course. But what I saw N.E. do that night was the ballsiest, guttsiests, most baseball thing I have ever seen since I started watching baseball at 5 years old. That was baseball. That’s what a baseball player is in a six plus inning relief appearance on only wicked short rest. The man, even if he doesn’t come back, will go down as a hero in my life after what he did for us, not only in that game, but along the post season. That is what a baseball player is. A team-first, head down, get to work, non-complaining, quiet, hustling, tough as dirt SOB. That’s a baseball player. And that was without a doubt my favorite moment. Oh, but how sweet was Machado striking out and falling to knee to end it all!

      Game 3. I was watching it in the only bar in the whole city that was showing it instead of hockey (I wish I was kidding) with another local Sox fan. The longer the game went and the longer Eovaldi pitched the more we felt that the Red Sox were going to win the Series regardless of how the game turned out. When we blew the lead in the 13th to extend the game, me and my friend turned to each other and said “this isn’t a bad thing”. LA was playing like a desperate team (they were, not wanting to go down 3-0) and they were mortgaging their chances of winning future games by pulling out all stops. As soon as the game finished (thank you to the bar for continuing to show the game and letting us stay after they locked the doors and we’re cleaning up), we again turn to each other and sag reed this was the critical point in the Series. Even though we lost the game, the 18 innings were going to help us win the Series. And he next day we saw how true that was when an exhausted Dodgers pen couldn’t hold a late lead against us. Even though Eovaldi took the L in the only game we lost, with respect to Steve Pearce and David Price, he may have been the true MVP of the Series.

      For me, the moment that will stand out the most from this playoff run might be an usual one. Game 2 of the ALCS, with the Red Sox trailing 1-0 in the series and down a couple runs, with David Price struggling on the mound. Up steps JBJ and with one swing everything changes. I was watching the game with friends and was understandably taking a lot of heat from them up until then. That ball took the craziest hop I have ever seen, I honestly don’t think another ball has ever done that at Fenway. The bases were cleared, they took the lead and never looked back. That’s when I knew this team was winning it all, and in my opinion the biggest at bat of the season.
