BOSTON (CBS) – 98.5 The Sports Hub’s Andy Gresh and Scott Zolak discuss a recent Ron Borges article, where the Herald writer yearns for the days before our teams started winning championships.

Not necessarily the losing, but the mindset.

Gresh references the 2013 Red Sox and how lackluster a season and World Series run it was, which was probably due in part to the Bruins and their long Stanley Cup run that went way into June.
