Just not sure what date they will win it.
You may be right.
Next question: Does anyone care?
It's like the Cubs. Someday they might win something but no one outside the area cares a rip.
Yep. I go for them when they aren't playing the Tigers.
I meant ANY AMERICAN. Assume that cannucks have no taste anyway . .
I wouldn't mark it down that the Red Sox will win the AL East. I can easily envision a scenario where the Sox not only don't win the AL East, but aren't the wild card team either.
I have to disagree with you on the Cubs....there are Cubs fans all over the country.

CC, People up here in Massachusetts are kind of holding their breath hoping (and some are praying, I'm sure), that you're wrong. History hasn't always been kind to the RS, though.
I would think (seriously, no ribbing) that most Cub fans/Red Sox fans are either from that area originally - or within the sphere of its broadcasts - and then moved elsewhere OR they were "orphaned" and had no local/regional team and had to settle on "somebody".
Every MLB team has that. I grew up with the Minneapolis Millers/St Paul Saints and later when the Twins came in from Washington DC. Even now, 900 miles away, they are "my" team, since Wyoming/Montana doesn't have one.
Yes, I'm a closet Twinkie (AL) and Rockies (NL) fan myself. So can't tease the Cub/Sox fans too much. Backing losers is a choice . . .
Dr. Bob, you are forgetting the power of cable television. Many people around the country got Superstation WGN that carried all of the Cubs games. Many people around the country became Cubs fans because they could watch all of their games on tv.
The Red Sox will not win the east. The Yankees are coming on strong. They may not win the wild card, either, but the Angels or A's would have to go on a torrid winning streak to win the wild card. My Indians are going to make history this year in being the first team to come back from a 15 game deficit after August 1st!
I won't bore anybody with the details about why I think this way, but anytime John Henry has the potential to lose, I'm on-board with it. However, if the Sox lose, then the Yankees win, and I like seeing the Yankees lose too. I'm very divided about who I'd like to see lose more.
I really enjoyed last year when the Yankees had a 3 games to none lead in the ALCS and then had the biggest choke in the history of professional sports.
Well at any rate the AL race is fun .
Very well could go down to the last day of the season.
It looks like the Yankees have the edge this week.Thier games are at home where they are usually pretty strong.
Before last year's ALCS began, I thought that the Sox would sweep the Yankees. Of course they did, but certainly not in a way that anybody thought could be done. My gut instinct tells me that Wakefield, Schilling, Clement and Wells all come up big this week. I think that the Sox will not only win the division, but knock the Yankees out of the postseason altogether.
Besides Randy Johnson and Mussina, I just don't trust that the Yanks pitching staff has what it takes to win these games. The Sox are the only team to consistently beat Rivera. Finally, the Yankees have Alex Rodriguez, the "anti-Babe".
Or, I could be all wet.
Hey, the Sox wrapped up their division! Oops, my bad. That was the White Sox. I guess the Red ones will have to keep playing .500 ball and hope the Yankees can't get the team bus to start.
Salty, a Red Sox fan in New York? How'd you get past the guards?
I think you are talking about the White Sox. As of last night The Red Sox magic number was 5 and the Yankee's magic number was 4.
The Yankees "magic number" will always be 3!
Yeah I know it was the WHITE Sox. I was still overcome by SALTY"S open disdain for the
I am not a Yankees fan either.
