Red Sox watch
The good news is that we're in first place in the AL East, with the best record in the AL at .608, second best in the majors (behind the NL's Chicago Cubs at an astonishing .634). The bad news is that we just ain't gettin' it done on the road. We're doing great at home (28-7) but the road record is a dismal 17-22. Blech.
Meanwhile, the Evil Empire has won five straight and has moved to third place, but they're still 5.5 games out. Suck on that, New York.
If we can hold steady at home and improve our road record, a Boston-Chicago World Series is entirely within the realm of possibility. I'd actually hate to see that for the simple reason that I'd hate to root against the Cubbies.
