Boston Red Sox - Do or Die
I assume this is it for 2011, 2games left in the regular season, 2 important games at Baltimore,got to wonder if the Red Sox used up all their ammunition for bird hunting this season.
Also as of Tuesday,the Red Sox and Rays are tied atop the wild card position, Rays are at Tropicana Field trying to squeeze the life from the Yankees. Yes it would be quite disastrous if the Boston were to have their playoff dreams end abruptly,although Red Sox fans have been down this familiar road before.
I started following the Sox during the mid seventies, especially 1974 when all of Boston were gloating 'this is our year' only to speak that too soon, 'wait til next year!' In 1975 they captured the American League pennant and was so close to becoming World Champions.
Then there was more heartbreak in 1978 and 1986.
However even though they won the World Series in 2004 and 2007, this is Theo and Terry's team, the same Red Sox that can overcome any obstacles and September collapses.
What's going to happen tonight and tomorrow? Got a feeling if Boston can't push the right buttons it could another long winter just like 1978 and 1986.
