Yes, that was intentional. In honor of John Lackey who, as Jeff Passan of Yahoo! notes today in the course of his excellent profile, wears an inspirational t-shirt under his jersey:
He won the right to walk around the clubhouse saying WE FEAR NOTHING. The back of the T-shirt screamed big, bold words as well, and minus the grammatical error, they couldn’t have been more fitting for the Red Sox.

I’m the last dude to call out anyone on bad grammar. Indeed, as all good writers know, while grammar matters, it’s more important to get your point across clearly than it is to get too hung up on formal rules.
And unless you can beat the Red Sox in a series — as task no one seems up to yet — the Red Sox’ meaning is quite clear indeed. And thus your not in much of a position too call them out either.
