BOSTON (CBS) – Ever since the B’s downed Detroit, the main topic of discussion in Boston sports talk has been centered around the Bruins and Montreal Canadiens, but what about the Red Sox and the Expos?
Rich Keefe decided to examine the history between Boston and Montreal’s lesser known rivalry all week long on Keefer Madness.
One team played in the National League while one has been an American League mainstay, so it’s not necessarily a “rivalry” to so speak, but there is a decent amount of history between the two teams.
To ring in the two cities coming together once again, Adam Jones and Rich Keefe explore “Les Grands Moments de L’histoire Red Sox-Montréal Expos,” which translates in English to “Great Moments In Red Sox-Expos History.”
On Monday, the 1997 Pedro Martinez trade was discussed.
Now that the dust has settled, and Pedro Martinez, Carl Pavano and Tony Armas Jr. have all retired, Keefe jokes, “We can finally say the Red Sox won that trade. I’m gonna go out there on a limb.”
