Wild Card

Well, the Sox have made it into the post-season by the skin of their teeth. We didn't quite beat the Yankees for the division title, but we did beat the Yankees yesterday and that counts for something. (In the complicated world that is baseball division races, the Sox came out with the exact same record as the Yankees, but those evil New Yorkers win the division by virtue of their record against us. In 19 games between the Sox and the Yanks this season, the Yankees won ten of them. So close.) It is difficult to accept the fact that one more win against crappy Tampa Bay would have given us the divison title.

But the important thing is that we are in. There will be October baseball, hopefully lots of it, to go along with the cooling weather and the apple dumplings I am going to make this weekend. Despite the injuries and the grumbling and Kevin Millar, the Sox got it done, and so, we celebrate. Red Sox vs. Chicago White Sox in Game 1 of the ALDS, tomorrow, 4:00 p.m.
