The flip flopping on this board and in the world in general never ceases to amaze me. All the win did on Monday was give the Sox a larger margin for error. That's all. There was no reason to print the playoff tickets or talk about the playoff rotation at that time. In turn, there is no reason to fall off a cliff and act like the world is coming to an end. The Sox have the advantage and still have a margin for error. I'd rather be in that position than chasing another team.
I know we have bad flashbacks about previous seasons. Well, under the Leyland regime, DET has faded down the stretch more than once. And you know what? Those past seasons mean nothing today.
On another note, stop talking about next season. There is no such thing as next year in sports. What happens now has no baring on the future.
