Make the playoffs.
They are a game behind the Yankees and a 1 1/2 behind the Indians, but I know you all know that since ESPN has the sad need to remind us every 20 minutes. But that is not the point. I mean the Yankees have no pitching. None, except Rivera. They have picked up every possible scrub in the world, in hopes that they could toss the ball in the general semblance of the plate, speed unimportant. And yet the sorry ass Sox have done nothing. If there was ever a year that the division was gift-wrapped for them, this was the one.
* Defending world Champs.
* The second best team Money could BUY.
* Yanks in disarray.
Hell the Yankees cannot beat the Devil Rays, but yet the Sox with an MVP in tow, are a game and half out.
I for one am ecstatic..
Now, I don't follow the North Eastern papers enough to know how the sheep are going to come in here and spin this, I am just a guy on the opposite coast, but I am sure that there will be some far fetched spinning coming this way. But I just want to remind them before they do ..
.. SCOREBOARD ..
They are on the outside looking in with 10 days to go.
And for that .. I am ecstatic ..
Also, please do not go thinking I am now some closet Yankees fan, anybody who knows me, knows that aint true. But if you put a gun to my head an made me choose between the two, I'd take a two inch hole in my skull before I uttered the word ... Red Sox
Feel free to avoid the subject and attack my Padres.
