Sox Playoffs Preview

The Red Sox begin their defense of their World Series title tonight, as they begin the playoffs, taking on the Angels in Anaheim.

The Sox are looking for their third World Series title this decade.

But it won't be easy. They don't have home field advantage for this series, and they're dealing with injuries to several star players.

To preview the playoffs, WBUR's Bob Oakes turns to baseball writer and analyst Glenn Stout.

This program aired on October 1, 2008. The audio for this program is not available.
