The Red Sox made history last night, becoming the first team in major league baseball history to force a Game 7 after being down 3-0 in a best-of-seven series. Final score: Red Sox – 4, Yankees – 2 (in only nine innings—what a pleasant change of pace from the past two nights).
And if I was a betting man (and I am), I’d bet the Sox are going to make history again tonight, becoming the first team to win a best-of-seven series after being down 3-0. I know, I know, it’s the Boston Red Sox, so something will intervene to prevent this—fire, brimstone, meteor shower, something—but in the absence of such divine intervention, I think the Yankees are toast.
You have no idea how much it pained me to say that.
