BOSTON — We all remember nine years ago when the Red Sox faced the Cardinals in the World Series, sweeping in four games to crush the curse and end an 86-year championship drought.

At the dawn of another World Series between the Sox and the Cardinals, we speak with a member of that “Impossible Dream” team: former All-Star Red Sox pitcher Jim Lonborg.
