Seriously, as bad as the Sox, Twins, Bosox et al are playing is any one of these teams out of the race? That is funny though.

Bill Simmons weighs in


Here's what really bothers me: Not only are the Yankees good, not only are they peaking at the perfect time, but their fans know it. So the Yankee fans are getting that old swagger back. Too bad. I just wish the Red Sox could spend as much money as them -- if we only had a billionaire owner, our own TV station, tons of merchandising money, tons of corporate sponsors and a team that sells out every home game. Hey, wait a second. ...

Nah. The BoSox have three games at home against the Right Sox, three games at home against the Twins, and get to watch the Right Sox and Twins beat up on each other for six games. But I still wouldn't bet on them:tongue: .

southsidesox.com had an interesting point on how the Sox closed July 10-15 and are only 11-10 this month but somehow lead the wild card race . . .

Dont count the Red Sox out of the wild card just yet.
