Early in 2004, two writers and Red Sox fans, Stewart O’Nan and Stephen King, decided to chronicle the upcoming season, one of the most hotly anticipated in baseball history. They would sit together at Fenway. They would exchange 3-mails. They would write about the games. And, as it happened, they would witness not only the greatest comeback ever in sports, but the first Red Sox championship in 86 years.
This team never looked back, logging an astounding August and a solid September to claim the wild card. In the playoffs, they killed the Angels, then ran into those damn Yankees. Down three games to none, down to their last three outs, the Red Sox rose from the dead to make history!
