Interesting. I hadn't really been paying attention to the schedule.
In the "careful what you wish for" department, I think I might go out on a limb and root for Tampa tonight.
A limb you call it? I want a Rays sweep. I want the MFY's humiliated.
i want the mfy to win,id like a playoff game or 2 in fenway,rule with your heads not your heart.democrats jeez
The Red Sox ARE my heart and my heart is with Offbase. I want to see Saint Jeter cry/
As I grew up, I knew that as a building (Fenway Park) was on the level of Mount Olympus, the Pyramid at Giza, the nation's capitol, the czar's Winter Palace, and the Louvre — except, of course, that is better than all those inconsequential places” ― Bart Giamatti

My head says that if the Red Sox – with a two game lead and nearly 2/3 of their remaining games against the third-worst team in baseball – need to count on the Rays losing in order to make the playoffs, then the Sox don't belong in the postseason in the first place.
Obviously with 8 games to go, the chances of making up 5 games against the Yankees are close to zero. But they aren't zero, so as long as the Sox have to win anyway, why not do it right?
We still have the tiebreaker.
because the math doesnt work based on this teams pitching condition.take the side with the best shot and thats hoping the yankees win at least 3 of the 7 preferably 4 of 7

That might have been the best inning for a Sox starter this week.
Erik Bedard: One more reason to believe.
We need to wrap him in liniment and cotten and otherwise keep him in one piece through November and we have a real chance. He can pitch when he' healthy.
Now would be a good time for our somnolent stars to wake up and warm up. pedey and Gonzo appear to be strirring.
And scoring first is a pleasant change
The young Bill James rather famously wrote that he could not find any evidence that certain types of players could consistently hit better in the clutch – he still has not found that evidence. But unlike his younger self, he will not dismiss the idea of clutch hitting. He has been a consultant for the Red Sox for more than a decade, and he has watched David Ortiz deliver so many big hits in so many big moments, and he finds himself unwilling to deny that Big Papi does have an ability in those situations others don’t have.
