It feels like déjà vu all over again. You can’t help but get the feeling
we’ve been here before, several times. Oh, wait. We have. Just last year,
in fact. And the year before. And many of the same players were in the
same positions. Of course, some have grown older, and some have been
replaced, but for the most part, the principals remain the same.

So here we are, in yet another version of the Boston Red Sox vs. the
Angels of Southern California. While it’s true that this is a new season,
we cannot talk about this particular series without at least mentioning
the history of the past few years. Since 1986, these two teams have faced
each other in four playoff series. The Red Sox have won each of them. More
importantly, since Game 7 of the 1986 ALCS, the Red Sox have only lost 1
game, while winning 9. The Red Sox have knocked the Angels out of the
first round of the playoffs in each of the last 2 seasons.

Here at Around the Bases, we will take a look at this American League
Divisional Series, and see if history will repeat itself for the 3rd
straight season or if the Angels have a shot at redemption. This season is
a little different than past seasons for the Angels. They are playing with
a purpose that they’ve never had before. Their season is dedicated to
teammate Nick Adenhart who was killed in early April by a drunk driver,
just hours after pitching the best game of his all too short career.
