Nick Coit: Red Sox ‘Left No Doubt in October’ [VIDEO]
As we bask in the afterglow of the Boston Red Sox’ fourth World Series championship in the last 15 years, ABC6’s Nick Coit joined us from outside Dodger Stadium to help us break it all down.
Nick said he still hadn’t slept following the Sox’ clinching victory Sunday night, but that didn’t stop him from giving us insight into the Sox and the series, as well as their remarkable overall postseason run facing the “best competition there is.”
“They left no doubt in October,” he said. “This team was just a buzzsaw.”
Nick also pointed out that the Dodgers only got one win against the Red Sox, and needed 18 innings to get it. He said he was impressed by how easily the team shook off that Game 3 loss to bounce back and win Game 4 on Saturday.
“J.D. Martinez put it perfectly,” he said. “He said he had never been on a team that could get punched in the face and then shake it off like it was nothing.”
Nick also thinks Chris Sale chewing out his teammates after that loss helped fuel them to win the next two games and the World Series trophy.
“That was huge, because it changed the momentum of the series,” he said.
Nick also discussed whether or not World Series MVP Steve Pearce is the greatest trade deadline acquisition in Red Sox history, and more.
