Game 156 - Red Sox
Indians 4, Red Sox 3
2.5 GB Tampa Bay in AL East, 6 GA NYY in Wild Card
Yesterday in the comments section I was asked a question about the Sox' postseason alignment. Today, after watching the Sox lose a game at home with their "big-game" pitcher on the mound facing a rookie with a nearly 6.00 ERA, that question seems to border on the ludicrous.
I guess it would be useful for me to gain some perspective - I could be a Mets fan, after all - but there's something...just...a...little...off about the Sox right now. They're giving off a faint whiff of 2005 as the season closes. Let's hope a clinch today gives them a chance to spray some Febreze around the old ballyard.
