Isn't that what some have been thinking and some more expected all along?
It isn't the Red Sox that are fading. They continue to play @ .600 ball.
The Rays have been shooting the moon, but the Red Sox haven't been fading.
The remarkable year continues. Clay has been out for ever. Yet we find ways to win. Lester's extended drought was sure proof that we were ready for a correction but ... Lackey, Doubie and assorted talents and prospects have done just enough to be ... effective enough that we were the first team to 50 wins, in the lead paxck od those at 60 ,... and now we are breathing down the neck of 70.
The Rays ARE playing extremely well. The Os are too ... but they remain a few games back of the lead pair.
The remarkable Yanquis aren't too far back ...
But remaining near .600 is still where the SOX are.
What a remarkable two wins v the Ms! I get up at 2 AM Eastern. So I dont stay up past 10 PM too often. Last week, when a game ended at 1 AM, I just showered and got ready for work ... But the last 2 nights, I admit I went to bet and ESPECIALLY last night was sure we had lost the fight against the king. Then the 9th inning insurrection began! WOW!!!!
Prophets of doom, time to enjoy the season, for Pete's sake. ENJOY IT while you can. If we falter ... and you can claim a "Told you so" WHY THE HECK NOT ENJOY WHILE WE Can!!!
Heck, I appreciate you guys and gals that enjoy it anyway! We sure are having a good time!
