Red Sox Lose First Place
- Typical. The Red Sox have lost their tenuous first place position and are now a half game out of first as well as a half game out of the wildcard spot. It's a very competitive year and I had doubted that the Sox would even have a .500 year. At work I'm surrounded by Yankees fans who whisper "Go Sox" to me as they leave every day knowing that that puts the jinx on. The last three games of the season (against the evil empire) is a set up for who will win the division, that is, if the Sox can keep up.
