Just curious as we approach the home stretch ... are you confident the Sox can find their way to the World Series? I'm not conident at all to be honest. Right now the Angels and Rays have better records and IMO are better teams than the Sox.
I think we can get there if we catch fire .. certainley possible ... but I just don't see us getting there as we are too inconsistent a team given our talent.
To get to the series we need:
1: Beckett to get to ace pitcher form.
2: Mike Lowell to get healthy.
3: David Ortiz to stay healthy.
4: Jacoby to get over the hump.
5: The bullpen to consistently hold a lead.
Those are just 5 ... there are more. Every team can make a list .. we know this. I won't be sure until we can take a few series on the road before the playoffs begin ... that at least has to be the start for this team.
Not passing any blame here ... luck is a huge part of making it to the dance. Theo has made good moves ... I mean Pedroia & Lowrie are carrying this team .. that's Theo. Francona is doing his best as always ... we're just a day late and a dollar short of putting a run of wins together.
Okay ... mini rant is over ... had to vent after 2 disturbing losses in a row.
