Oh, sure, I would have preferred it if the Red Sox won their game last night. I mean, I certainly expected them to. I guess as much as you can "expect" any team to win a dozen plus games in a row. But, I could just feel it last night. They were on a roll. David Price was going to come up huge, and they would simply clinch the division. Get it all out of the way.
Or, the Blue Jays were going to lose. After all, they just had that big brawl with the Yankees (yay for them) and were suffering the consequences. Worst case, the Sox wait for them to lose, and then clinch the division.
But, as we all know, that didn't happen. The Sox just couldn't hold on and New York pulled out a Yankee Stadium win.
Here's the thing, though. You may have forgotten, but teams are allowed to lose. Good teams lose. Teams on an incredible roll lose. Sometimes, you just don't win. It doesn't mean you won't win again. It doesn't mean the Sox aren't the best team in the American League. It doesn't mean they won't clinch tonight. It just means they lost a game. The line-up is still incredibly powerful. Their top two pitchers are still as good as anyone's. They are still a ton of fun to watch. So be ready.
They'll probably clinch tonight.
