Of course, the Curse is still in effect. This part - the part dealing with the Yankees - has been overcome, but remember that the Red Sox have made it to the World Series four times since 1918, only to lose in game 7 each time. They're not out of the woods yet. And, knowing the Red Sox, they only succeed in order to choke worse later on. As a Bostonian friend said, "Of course they'll beat the Yankees. It would be a much bigger choke-job to beat them and then lose to Roger Clemons (probably the best pitcher in Red Sox history, allowed to leave and now playing for the Houston Astros) in game 7."
Still... maybe this is the year.
