I think it's better to play as hard as we can in the remaining 18 games and be happy with the WC. If we win the division and catch the Yanks somehow, it will be in the divisional round: Sox vs. Detroit Yanks vs Angels Detroit won't be easy in a best of 5 series especially with verlander pitching in two games. Let the yanksleeze play them. If we win the WC, it will be: Sox vs. Anaheim Yanks vs. Detroit. We match up much better against Anaheim since their pitching is not that great. We can take Lackey and Saunders.
