I remember being pretty terrified right around this time in 2005. The fact is the sun will set and rise 13 more times (less than 2 weeks) and our lives will go on no matter what happens. These 13 days will feel like 13 years while they are happening, but it won't take long before they feel like an instantaneous blip. That will be the case whether the Sox win the division or fall short.

No matter what, we'll all be here again in April, agonizing over the next season. The circle of life!

I've honestly been unable to "watch" games for about 4 weeks now. Usually I'm in on every pitch, but I've had to shut off billions of games because the Sox lose the lead early. I've been DVRing the games, and mostly I skip past the opponent's half of the inning because I can't bear to watch the Sox give up runs. When's the last time we had a blowout?

Sounds good to me. After kicking our behinds all season, I'll be a big Billy Butler fan the next 13 days.

This. I wouldn't use the word "scared" (more like "apprehensive"), but whatever the case may be I'm enjoying this pennat race.

Going to be a nerve wrecking last 2 weeks for sure. If we miss the playoffs, the 6-12 record vs KC will almost be entirely to blame, no excuse for it.

I don't do scared. When I start to feel apprehensive it just pisses me off. I will only back up so far. Think something's busted in my survival instinct mechanism.

As a great philosopher once said:

"If you're scared, go buy a dog."

GO SOX!

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.

Logic is such a rare thing these days. Great post.

I dunno, I think that the abysmal record against the Tigers is more to blame.

Detroit ends the season with 3 games in KC.
