Just to keep a little perspective on what's going on, I'll say the same thing about the Sox that I said about the O's, Yankees and Rays when they were on their hot streaks. This won't last. Nobody plays .800 ball over a long stretch. The game itself doesn't allow it to happen. The good news is that the Sox have built up enough of a lead now that they can afford the luxury of a slight skid and still survive it. Nobody else in the AL East can.
Now... if I'm right about this and the Sox lose a few PLEASE don't start telling me that the sky is falling. They'll be fine. This is baseball and "stuff" happens.
