The poor Red Sox just can't seem to win for losing. They are three and half games back of the New York Yankees, and three and half games ahead of the Tampa Rays. They have no more curses to blame their losing streaks on. This time it's all about bad baseball.
If the Yankees keep it up, they will pull so far ahead of the Red Sox, and the Red Sox may have to settle for a spot in the World Series as a wild card. However, one can always hope not to see the Red Sox at all at the series, but then it's not as much fun to watch the Yankees win, but I'll take it! Go Yankees!
