When New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman proclaimed his team as the only one that could “do damage” against the Boston Red Sox in late July, a rallying cry was born.
Ever since that time, Boston’s credo has been simple and an easy way to troll its rival after each accomplishment: do damage.
After the Red Sox capped off a historic season Sunday by defeating the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-1 in Game 5 of 2018 World Series to capture their fourth title since 2004.
As the celebration began at Dodger Stadium, the Red Sox tweeted out a simple message with a short video.
Boston accomplished its mission thanks to a magnificent performance from World Series MVP Steve Pearce, domination on the mound from David Price and Chris Sale punctuating a title by striking out ultimate villain Manny Machado.
