What the Red Sox Need to Do to Win the World Series

Zachary D. Rymer@zachrymerFeatured Columnist IVSeptember 29, 2016

Last season, Boston Red Sox lost 93 games and made an absolute mockery of themselves in the process. It looked like it would be a long time before they would be seen in the World Series again.

Instead, it took just one year for the Red Sox to return to the Fall Classic.

With some help from Shane Victorino, the Red Sox punched their ticket to the World Series with a dramatic win over the Detroit Tigers in Game 6 of the American League Championship Series. They’re now looking to be the first team in the new millennium to win three championships.

The team the Red Sox are facing, however, has that exact same goal. And after dispatching a tough Los Angeles Dodgers team in the National League Championship Series, there’s little question the St. Louis Cardinals have the goods to beat the Red Sox.

MLB Lead Writer Zachary D. Rymer has a few ideas for the next steps the Red Sox need to take to beat the Cardinals. They’re going to need some key offensive players to step up, as well as their starters to match up against the suddenly lethal combination of Adam Wainwright and Michael Wacha. It’s also paramount that they don’t allow Carlos Beltran to do the things he’s used to doing in October.

If you have any thoughts, questions or ideas of your own, you’re welcome to leave them below.
