Dude, I'd like to believe, but it ain't happenin. Let the Sox play for pride at this point, and yes; stranger things have happened. But don't get your hopes up.

IIRC, it was 1.5 games after the Sox lost the game after the Crede walk off.

Games are games. It makes NO difference.

Uhhhhh.... Yeah it does matter. Because when the Sox beat one of the three that are in front of them, the other two benefit. You'r not just trying to catch one team. If you beat the Tigers 7 times, you may gain 7 games on them, but so may the Twins and Indians.

This virus will clear up with after watching a dose of Gavin Floyd pitch tomorrow. If his limited past is any indicatin, instead of picking up 3 games against Det this weekend, we'll pick up one.

Your formula doesn't work. If you keep winning, you catch up. It's that simple. You're looking at the steps, I'm talking about the journey.

NO, you only catch up if the teams above you also lose.
