    Is it "Here we go again?" again?

      What a dumb article. It makes it sound like the Red Sox are in jeopardy of not only not winning the division, but not even winning the Wild Card. Like my Tigers could catch them now...

        Sox Lead Tigers by 8 Games

        That's the key part to the article. Why in the world would it be time to panic? The Sox are GOING to the playoffs.

        "Crisp tried to put things in perspective, telling the media that “We're still up by 4½, not down by 4½, so it's hardly time to panic." He sounded a lot like some fellows who played for the Red Sox in 1978 and some others who played for them in on October 25, 1986"

        Is that you, CHB? Shaughnessy has somehow infested his disease in writers all over the country.

          "It ain't over until it's over" sounds like a really naive philosophy. It distributes all possible outcomes with equal probability which is just bad mathematics.

            The New York Yankees are closer to missing the playoffs than they are to winning the division, as they will still be even if things go the Yankees way today. New York trails the Boston Red Sox by 5.5 right now, but they only lead Detroit by 2.5. The best that it can be after today is a 3.5 lead over Detroit by 3.5 while still trailing Boston by 4.5.

              As a lifelong Sox fan old enough to remember '75, '78 etc..... I am not immune to seeing the Yanks make a late charge and think "here we go again".

              But I have not been too worried for the last few weeks. Even with the sweep in the Bronx, all you had to do was look at the records of both teams and the number of games left to play.

              While the media has constantly hyped the possibility of a '78 style collapse, the Yankees simply dug themselves too deep a hole earlier in the season to catch a team that was going to have 95-100 wins.

              The Red Sox are going to win the division, and barring a "collapse" the Yanks will win the wild card.

              Red Sox, Yankees, Angels, and Indians, Wow, it should be an exciting October.

              Hopefully culminating with another WS flag being raised over a certain historic ballpark on Yawkey way next April. :crossfingers:
