The 1970 Sox sure earned those 106 losses. The loss to which these Sox aspire, number 106, happened on the final day of the season, and in typical fashion-the Sox were down 3-1 in the top of the 9th vs. the Angels in Anaheim when Walt Williams struck a game-tying home run. In the top of the 11th Bill Melton hit his 33rd homer of the season to give them a 4-3 lead which they couldn't hold. They lost in the bottom of the inning on a game-winning hit by Mel Queen-the Angels pitcher.

But it was a loss with heart. I only hope that the 2013 Sox show as much heart if/when they chalk up number 106.
