The 2005 Boston Red Sox made a valiant run for a team that basically played the entire season without its number one starter or its closer. But in the end, the lack of arms showed when it counted. The Red Sox were swept in three games by the Chicago White Sox in the ALDS, and were outscored, 24-9, in those games.
