Schilling and the boys are having a bit of a tough time at the moment.
Holy crap this is going to be a stressful two weeks.
Every night is like another stress event. Watching the Sox and keeping track of the Spankees and the Indians. Good thing my heart is not old and tired, then we might have a real problem.
After the series with the Yankees we headed up north to play the Blue Jays. We sure have had a heck of a time with them this year, who knows why.
We got the win in the first game thanks to Big Pappi. At times it feels like he really is carrying this team right now. He hit a HR in the 10th to win it. The bullpen managed to blow a 5-0 lead. Oyyy.
Tuesday night Clement got rocked and we all around didn't look so good. We lost 9-3.
Wednesday night was another so so night but it was topped off by another game winning HR by Papi. Thank god.
Meanwhile the Yankees finally figured out the D-Rays and swept them. They have won 4 in a row and seem to be peaking at the right time.
Last night we started a four game set with the A's. Schilling got roughed up for 2 runs in the first inning and we never seemed to get back in it. We lost 6-2. So much for Schilling being back in control of his game.
This whole thing is getting very nerve-wracking. The Yankees are winning the games they need to and we aren't. They are now within a game and a half. This weekend they are playing the Blue Jays while we play the A's. I would say they have the momentum at the moment that is for sure. If we fall out of first we also fall out of the wild card. That is not an exciting thought, not at all. The Indians are on fire and at this rate they may catch the White Sox.
It's gonna be a tricky couple weeks.
I sure would like to win the next three against the A's.
GO RED SOX!
