Right now the Sox are the 6th best team in the AL record wise, Detroit: 8th. Neither team is all that good, they just had the luck of being drawn in the same ****ty division.
Making the playoffs would be nice, but it's not like it would be a tragedy if this team didn't make the postseason, since they are a wholly forgettable team. I predicted at the season's start that if EVERYTHING went the Sox' way they would compete for the 2nd wild card, which as it turns out is exactly what they're doing. It just turns out the Tigers are doing the same.
Choking down the stretch sucks, but they're not the kind of team that has shown the potential to do anything when it matters.
