Our few days in Boston were just about perfect (except for the extreme, near-100 degree heat on Wednesday).
Two Red Sox games (& two wins, including a 15-5 laugher!), some research at the Boston Public Library, seeing Amy, Jere (and Kim), and Joe Grav (and his girlfriend Amy, who provided the tickets on Tuesday!), meeting Matthew Kory (who writes at Over the Monster and Baseball Prospectus and happened to be visiting from Portland), and spending many hours catching up with our niece Cassie.
Plus we had a view of the back of the Monster Seats from our window at the Hotel Buckminster (where at least some of the 1919 World Series fix was discussed/planned by the White Sox players during a mid-September series with the Red Sox).
