Slipping Away

A crushing loss last night for the Red Sox. 5th starter Jason Johnson went six innings with 1 earned run. The Sox were leading the Devil Rays 6-1 in the 6th inning. The Yankees had already won, so the pressure was on, and the bullpen melted, giving up 5 more runs to lose 7-6. (The Devil Rays had scored an unearned run on Johnson)

So today as I blog this, the Red Sox are not in the playoffs. They trail the Chicago White Sox by 1/2 game, and are now tied with the Twins.

Yankees will be playing the White Sox this week.

Will be interesting.

If Yankees win, the Bosux move back into wild card lead. If Yankees lose, they move into AL East lead.

Looks like a positive week for the Bosux.

But look out for the Twins. 22 hits yesterday.
