Why this team? Why these players? Why this year --- after an 86-year losing streak? In IDIOT-SYNCRACIES, popular Remy Report columnist A. Knoefel Longest presents the passion, peculiarities, and personalities that make this the most unlikely team in baseball history to win the World Series. Written in Longest's inimitable style, and with a foreword by former Red Sox player and now Red Sox sportscaster Jerry Remy, the book consists of two parts: The Lineup and The Staff. Peppered throughout the text will be sidebars and boxes that speak to the Red Sox past --- triumphs and disappointments, parallels and pitfalls, heroes and fools.
