on may 13 the red sox were 17-20, tied for last place in the amercian league east and about to open up a 3 game series in new york. that afternoon i wrote this:
basically it just says it was time to get their butts in gear and stop messing around. well they swept the yankees in the bronx that weekend, and again 3 weeks later. and since that day the sox are 20-6. they're now in first place with a 2 game lead on the rest of the american league, and only half a game behind philly for the best record in baseball. so you're welcome, boston.
