At the close of business on August 31, 2011, the Boston Red Sox had a 1.5 game lead on the Yankees and a 9 game lead on the Tampa Bay Rays.
And, in the 20 days that followed, Boston lost 15 of 20 games.
Yes, the Red Sox went five and fifteen.
Man, if Boston blows this thing…it’s going to be great. This is even better than when the Red Sox folded in August of 2006.
I have tickets to one of the games at the Stadium when the Red Sox come to town. And, boy, will it be a pleasure not to have to listen to Red Sox Nation up in the Bronx. They should be real quiet by then…
