Reviews - What do our customers think?
Crying Shame!  Nov 11, 2007
Yes, the book is full of errors. They are altering history! It's obvious the book was rushed.

Here are some other error facts:

1) The errors seem to be inconsistent. It's almost like they tried to fix them and created others!
2) The box score errors are the saddest part of the book. When you look at the box scores to see how the Sox beat the Yanks so dramatically and the runs don't even add up in the total column...sigh...
3) In my book, the Pedro Martinez tribute story starts on page 116 and re-starts on page 118 (of course these page "numbers" might not match with yours).

Bad edit decisions exist too. Put the World series first, then the ALCS, the ALDS, and then the regular season??? So, I read it backwards.

The pictures are nice. I love the ALCS Game 3 spectator shot (p. 47)--it sums up the feelings I had at that time. Is it worth $25? How big of a fan are you? I'd still by it again, but it's a huge disappointment. What a paradox!
More errors  Sep 17, 2005
In addition to the errors listed by others, I see missing letters in the middle of words, quote marks that are the wrong style (backticks instead of curly quotes, done inconsistently), inconsistent indentations ... it's a typesetting nightmare. Big disappointment.
Errorful  Jun 26, 2005
I wonder if anyone tried to edit this book. You would think that after 86 years of no championships, this book would be flawless. O well, at least the Boston Globe tried and I'm sure the ring is more important than a book to Red Sox fans.
Pathetic, weak effort - someone ought to be fired over this  Apr 1, 2005
So, after 86 years, the Red Sox finally break through. And, for this special, long-awaited moment, does the once-august Boston Globe take the time to lovingly, painstakingly put together a keepsake for its maniacly devoted fans? No. Instead it puts out a complete and utter piece of dreck. Someone at the Globe or publisher Triumph Books - perhaps the entire team charged with assembling this gaffe - ought to be fired. Shame on you.

This book simply was not edited, fact-checked, reviewed, verified or even given the simplest 'once over.' Even a quick read-through should have caused even the most junior editor at the Globe/Triumph to ask that the presses be stopped.

Reviewer Arthur Weeks has compiled a great list and it gives you an idea of just how egregious these errors are - missing box scores, earned runs in shutouts, St. Louis scoring four runs in the ninth inning of a game they lost 6 - 2. You can't make this stuff up.

Here's a couple of more:

- On pages 26 - 27, two pictures claim to show Larry Walker (p. 26) and Jeff Suppan (p. 27) making baserunning blunders. In fact, both pictures are of Walker - different angles, but it's clearly Number 33 in both shots (and Suppan was wearing a warm-up jacket as I recall).

- On page 86, they bollix up the name of the very guy who coined the term 'Curse of the Bambino': the Globe's own Dan Shaughnessy, who here becomes Dan Shaugnessy.

Furthermore, the box scores are of the variety that appeared in your small, local paper circa 1969. They've got about 25% of the content of a box score that appears today in USA Today and most other corners of the statistics-crazed world of baseball. These box scores offer the reader next to no insight on the game.

One other metric to give you an idea of how thin the gruel is: the marketing blurb provided on these pages (no doubt provided by Triumph) says the book is filled with 'hundreds of color photos.' The book, in fact, has exactly 79 photos. And I'm being lenient here by including the front and back cover images and one page that contains six 1.75" x 3" photo head shots of various players.

In short: pathetic.

It's a crying shame. I urge all Red Sox fans to avoid this book.

I want my money back.
Highly disappointing effort  Feb 3, 2005
[...] This book was highly disappointing to me as a huge Sox fan for a number of reasons. In an effort to produce something quickly, the Globe sportswriters wrote some of their worst articles ever. Look no further than inside the front cover, where it says that a statue will be erected to Pedro Martinez, among others. After Pedro bolted for the Mets and trashed the team, that seems highly unlikely. Perhaps if the Globe let some time pass by before writing this trash, they could have placed the championship in a better perspective. For now, however, I am glad that I borrowed a copy instead of paying for one.
