Magic Number 2

That Papelbon is crazy. But he's also good, as he showed last night. He got out of a tight spot in the top of the 9th, sealing the deal with a strikeout. The Sox won 4-3! Unfortunately, the Rays also won, so we didn't gain any ground in the race for the Division title. However, the post-season is looking more and more within our grasp. The question becomes whether it's better to face the Angels in the first round. We've owned them in the post-season - yet, this year, we've had real difficulties beating them. The other choice: the White Sox (if they hold on and win the AL Central). If we end up as wild card and the Rays win the division, the White Sox get to head to the House of Horrors.

I like our chances against the White Sox, if that happens. I fear the Angels a little.

But let's not get ahead of ourselves. We still need to win a few more games.
