How to hold up the sky?
Divine intervention? Not gonna happen.
A visit by some pesky little birds to Fenway? As Dave Hester likes to say, "YUUUUUUP!"
Last time things looked bleak after we started 2-10, I warned that a visit by Toronto would right our ship. And sure enough we won 8 of the next 9 and that dismal start was quickly forgotten. The first win in that series happened to coincide with the first ever Red Sox Nation international event. The Red Sox have had great success at these, winning all 5 games at these watch parties. As luck would have it, the next one is tomorrow, Tuesday September 13th, 5 PM at the Melrose Cafe.
So instead of looking back at the Rays that are gaining on us, look ahead to the next couple of games. I wouldn't be surprised if after these games the talk shifts from "will the Rays catch us" to "will we catch the Yankees".
If you're in the area, come support your team, and join us as we watch the Red Sox get back to their winning ways.
