      Many of us read Pete Abraham when he wrote for Lohud and also follow him now as Sox beat writing for the Globe. He is mentioned in unflattering light by Murray Chass. Quote and full link below.

      –In Boston, the Globe’s Peter Abraham seems to have assumed command of Valentine’s Society of Sycophants. He has written recent pieces absolving Valentine of all blame for the team’s poor season and placing it elsewhere. Even in his most recent article, which seems to adopt a different view, he manages to find fault with others.–

      Seven games in the standings over a period of five weeks is an ebb or flow?

      For the record, the Yankees have gone 16-18 since July 18th whereas the Rays have gone 22-11.

      1996 Yanks blew 9.5 games of their 12 game lead in 44 days.
      Oh, and this team built the 10 game lead from 0 in just over 5 weeks.
      And gained 15.5 games in the standings in two months.

      So yeah, ebb and flow is possible.
