If the Boston Red Sox are looking for a theme song to their 2017 season, they might want to consider The Who's "The Kids Are Alright". It's an old song about the young, and it was youth that delivered the Red Sox a dramatic extra innings 3-2 win over the NY Yankees at the Stadium last night.

Ace. Stopper. Cy Young favorite.
