I’m loathe to write about the Red Sox, because I have a feeling that the second I do, they’ll start sucking.
But I gotta say… I’m liking what’s happening.
Mother’s Day? Down 5-0 in the bottom of the ninth …and they come back to win?
Yesterday? Dice-K becomes the first Bosox rookie since 1994 to throw a complete game, trouncing Detroit 7-1?
Beckett, Dice-K, and Schilling dominating the mound? And everybody hitting from the plate?
A 26-11 record for the season? 8.5 games in front of the Yankees (thanks in part to the sweep a few weeks ago)?
Yes, I know. It’s a long season, and the Red Sox are notorious for starting off with a bang, and then slowly getting injured. And choking at the last moment. But at this point in 2004 (when they won the pennant and World Series), they were 5 games over .500. Now they are 15.
So I like the feel of this.
