It’s time to print the playoff tickets

Try to remember a few weeks back. The Red Sox weren’t scoring runs, the bullpen looked ordinary, and the New York Yankees were climbing up the standings. As Boston held to a 4 game lead, thoughts of the Red Sox epic collapse in 1978 were in the minds of all Sox fans. Well, those thoughts are history. The Sox are back.

After a dominating 4-game sweep of the Chicago White Sox, where Red Sox starting pitchers gave up 5 earned runs and the Sox bats came alive to produce 46 runs, the Red Sox now lead the AL East by 7 1/2 games with a 3 game set at Yankee Stadium starting Tuesday.

The Red Sox are peaking at the right time of the season. With 31 games left, 18 of which are at Fenway Park, it’s time to print the playoff tickets… Objects in the mirror are NOT as close as they appear.
