Red Sox
Since May 29: 67-35 (.657). In September: 13-4, 3.64 ERA. Hot starter: Mike Mussina, 2-0, 1.10 ERA in September. Ryan's comment: 'The reason they have not won since 2000 is that their starting pitchers have failed them in the playoffs. Period. End of story. Are Pettitte, Wang, Clemens, and Mussina good enough? If they are, there is no reason the Yankees can't win.'
