Boston Red Sox and the Meaning of Life
By Mark Rucker, hardbound, 400 pages, 200 photographs and illustrations, size 6.125 x 6.125 inches, ISBN-13: 9780760335062.

"If we could have scored one more run than the White Sox in each game, I think we would have won the series" - so opined Boston manager Terry Francona. Sharp observations such as this have brightened the Red Sox Nation through the years. "All literary men are Red Sox fans," said John Cheever. And while the Red Sox made it to the top of the baseball world in 2004 after a long and tortured history, presidential hopeful John Kerry remarked, "If anything prepares you to be president, it's being a Red Sox fan" - even though he ultimately failed to reach his goal.

The franchise that has gone from dynasty to dud and back to dynasty has inspired its share of comments from pundits and wisecrackers, legends and toffs. And the Sox have had their own world-class quipsters and philosophers, from Cy Young and Babe Ruth, Jimmie Foxx and Lefty Grove, Ted Williams and Bobby Doerr, Carl Yastrzemski and Carlton Fisk, Pedro Martinez and David Ortiz - as well as its fair share of colorful characters, from Jimmy Piersall to Bill Lee to Manny Ramirez to Dustin Pedroia. The combination has produced countless moments of drama and entertainment for the Red Sox Nation through the decades.

Collected here are more than a century's worth of the best-known, wittiest, pithiest, and most entertaining writings, quotes, and quips relating to the Red Sox, accompanied by 200 photos and illustrations to provide an inspiring look at a legendary sports franchise.
