"Historic pennant races make for compelling narratives, none more fantastic than the fairy tale 2004 Red Sox season.[...] Memories of David Ortiz's slugging heroics, bourbon fueled pregame rituals, Dave Roberts's stolen base, Curt Shilling's blood stained sock, and Kevin Millar's manic enthusiasm all recall the first and perhaps most profound championship by the long benighted Red Sox." —TheDailyBeast.com
"Captivating . . . . An outstanding oral history . . . . Relive the baseball party of a generation, all over again, in the pages of Don't Let Us Win Tonight." —Don Laible, UticaOD.com

Relive the entire Red Sox postseason via the words of the participants themselves. Then, after the current season is completed, take this book out & relive again. Each time you'll find something probably unnoticed before.
By using the players' own words, it captures the tension and emotions of that historic playoff run. It's filled with fascinating detail - about the events and characters, baseball, and the psychology of sports at the highest level - but it's also a load of fun for a fan who wants to re-live the experience.
This was a trip back to 2004, having the foresight to carry one eagerly thru the brutal first 3 games of the ALCS to the coming redemption and triumph. Masterful writing and editing to tell, relive the story thru the eyes of the Red Sox themselves. Reading this, I was there again, this time at Fenway, instead of in front of the TV.
If any real Sawx fan hasn't a copy yet, the holidays are coming fast...
