Red Sox in the playoffs
The Red Sox clinched their wild card berth in the playoffs when Texas lost to Anaheim on Tuesday night. It was a muted celebration as they clinched it on a five game losing streak. Having said that, since the MLB playoff field is so small, there is really no way you can just "back into" the playoffs. They went on a hot streak from mid August to mid September so they earned their berth. It should be interesting to see if they can go on yet another run this year. The Angels feel they will get them at some point but many experts feel they are the second best team in the American League. It will be exciting to see it all play out. Go Sox!
