There's no reason to get in a fit with these projections. BP, along with many other publications, and tv analysts will make their projections. The Sox historically have not gotten respect from the national and local media as well as about half the city itself. It doesn't bother me. I have been fortunate to be watching meaningful September baseball nearly every season since I have started watching the Sox (around '93) and I expect that to continue this year. Remember, you only need to be the #5 seed to get in.
2017 Sox Attendance Record 0-2
Anticipated next game: 4/26 vs Royals
