Games 51 & 52 - Red Sox
A's 8, Red Sox 3
A's 3, Red Sox 0
A really smart, if partially intoxicated guy recently wrote of the Red Sox' recent success, "...so I'll enjoy it for now and remember that the Sox have to go to the West Coast where the odds turn quickly."
Honestly, it's sometimes painful to be this smart and prescient (and humble, don't forget humble) at the same time. It's also painful to watch the Sox play on the West Coast. Fortunately, I live on the East Coast, and I'm presently ensconced in my parents' breezy South Carolina home, so I don't actually have to "watch".
