Why this team?
Why these players?
Why this year - after an 86-year losing streak?

In IDIOT-Syncracies, popular Remy Report columnist A. Knoefel Longest presents the passion, peculiarities, and personalities that make this the most unlikely team in baseball history to win the World Series. Written in Longest's inimitable style, and with a foreword by former Red Sox player and now Red Sox sportscaster Jerry Remy, the book consists of two parts:

The Lineup - Johnny Damon, superstar
- Destination: Mannyland
- Big Papi Rises Up
- Night at the Varitek Symphony Orchestra (VSO)
- Nixon in Purgatory
- Mr. Goodtime Rally Cowboy-Up Guy
- The Quiet Ones-Down and Out with Mark Bellhorn & Billy at the Bat
- Deep Depth-How to Play Shortstop for the for the Boston Red Sox, Mientkiewiczetera, Doug's Turn, His Day in the Sun, and Kapler Afield

The Staff - Professor Pedro and Mr. Martinez
- Curt ex machina
- Old Sock, New Sock
- Me & D-Lowe
- The Bullpen-Timlin & Embree Together Again and The Accidental Closer

Peppered throughout the text will be sidebars and boxes that speak to the Red Sox past - triumphs and disappointments, parallels and pitfalls, heroes and fools.
