    Wild Card is MLB's Version of Food Stamps Anyway...

    Give it to Tampa...they deserve it...they are doing everything they can to grab this ring.

    RS?...Like having a fortune and blowing it....

    Best Ever?  

    Weren't ready coming out of Spring Training...
    Couldn't sustain success once they were...

    Nothing about this team represents anything that merits the post-season...

    Nothing except their record. Tied for the wild card, by definition 1/2 game short of going to the post-season.

    I like it for what it was supposed to be:  for a team that got hot at the end of the year but given a slow start didn't have enough W's to win the division

    Not for backing into it like the Sox may do

    This is flawed logic. The timing of lost games is irrelevant.

    The Food Stamp Sox won it in 2004.  The Numb Nine won't make it this year, but there is no comparison between those teams even if they make it.

    not really

    do you want a team that went 0-81 in the first half and 81-0 in the second half or a team that went 81-0 in the first half and 0-81 in the second half

    who is the better team at the end of the regular season?

    They would both have a record of 81-81.They're equally average.

    Whether the Sox are playing very well or very poorly is also irrelevant to Andrewmitch. His online admission to be being "HEADSTRONG" or obstinate will never waiver no matter how they play.

    It doesn't matter. The idea is to get to the playoffs and anything can happen. You could say the former team has the momentum, but the thing about momentum is that it can swing 180 degrees at any time. See 2004 ALCS.

    Epic collapse falling in a ditch with the Rays is what this is. Rays were within a couple of games and lost 2 out of 3 to Os and 3 out of 4 to Yanks. Hardly carpe diem, backing up for a welfare handout is more like it.
