Red Sox Catcher

In the history of the Boston Red Sox franchise in the Major League Baseball, the 2011 season was the 111th season overall.

Prior to the start of the season, many people predicted that the Boston Red Sox would win the American League East division and advance all the way to the World Series.

Some even drew parallels between the Red Sox and the New York Yankees team of 1927. The Red Sox finished third in their division, seven games behind the Yankees, with a record of 90 wins and 72 losses.

After leading the Tampa Bay Rays in the American League wild-card race by nine games on September 3  the day their chances of reaching the postseason peaked at 99.6 percent the Boston Red Sox went on to lose 18 of their final 24 games.

On the final day of the season, September 28, a loss by the Red Sox to the Baltimore Orioles due to a blown save, combined with a comeback victory by the Rays over the Yankees in the 12th inning, resulted in the Rays winning the American League wild card and eliminated the Red Sox from postseason contention.
