Retrospectively Hilarious Red Sox Hyperbole, Vol. 1

Marked as Volume 1 because I'm guessing there will be a few more of these before we get tired of making fun of the Boston Red Sox for gassing a nine-game lead for the AL wild card with 3 1/2 weeks left in the regular season and losing out to the Tampa Bay Rays in Game 162.

This was the cover of the Boston Herald's Red Sox season preview edition, which did everything but size the Red Sox for championship rings. (Hat tip to DRaysBay and many, many other people who found it and retweeted it on Twitter. I really couldn't tell you who was first.)
