Alex Cora at Red Sox World Series parade: 'We scored 16 at Yankee Stadium. Suck on it'

The Boston Red Sox are parading and celebrating their World Series with their fans in the streets of Boston. There’s hugging and happiness everywhere. And when manager Alex Cora spoke to the fans at the parade, he found a way to make them all even happier. He spoke to their hearts and souls, and reminded them of one of the team’s most triumphant wins of the playoffs.

Yes, Alex Cora brought up the Red Sox’s 16-1 annihilation of the New York Yankees in Game 3 of the American League Division Series. The Red Sox had lost one of two games at Fenway Park, and people were starting to doubt. Could the team that won 108 games during the regular season make it past the Yankees?

The answer was a resounding YES, OH YES, because they went to Yankee Stadium and scored 16 runs, and then went on to win the World Series. And to those doubters, Alex Cora has but one thing to say: “Suck on it.”

Sorry, Yankees fans. Alex Cora and the Red Sox won the World Series. They get to gloat for awhile. But think of it this way: the Red Sox just won the World Series, and during the parade, their manager mentioned a game they won in the first round of the playoffs. Beating the Yankees is still a big deal.
