After last night’s brutal loss the Red Sox are dead even with the Rays in the Wild Card race with 2 games to play. All of Red Sox Nation is biting their nails right now, but real fans support the Sox through Thick & Thin.
It’s a 48 hour race to the finish line that could very well end with a 1 game playoff. In the event of a play-in game Boston would have to roll out Tim Wakefield, Andrew Miller or move up Josh Beckett to pitch on short rest. Let’s hope it doesn’t come to that.
Erik Bedard faces his former team tonight in Baltimore. Hopefully Bedard is in his comfort zone at Camden Yards where he pitched four seasons of his best baseball.
The Sox need to win to get in, as any hope of coasting into the Wild Card slot has vanished. Unfortunately the Rays are playing the Yankees, so I can’t bring myself to watch that match-up because I’d feel disgusting rooting for the Yannn- I can’t even say it. All we can do is cheer for the Red Sox and say a few prayers to the baseball gods. Hang in there Red Sox Nation!
