That game had a 2004 WS G1 feeling: "They tied it up? Oh well, doesn't matter since we're the team that's gonna win. It'll be more dramatic this way."

I was just saying how Salty just needs a fly ball to give us the lead and that he shouldn't swing for the fences. Then came a massive grandmother slamfather. After the Whores took so long to come back from 4-0 down, we end up re-loading the original 4-run lead with one swing. Pretty soon KojiUeharaandsometimesy was doing his speedy slam routine, retiring his 35th, 36th, and 37th batter in a row, and it was an 8-4 W for the good side. I love how Yankee fans probably thought they were the team of destiny on this night, only to have their dreams dashed.

Balty gained a game on them, and Cleveland passed them. The Rays won to push them further back, too. A super sweet strawberry ice cream with syrup night.

Magic number to win the East: 7
Magic number to eliminate Yanks in East: 4

A few minutes ago I went to to see how they did in game 3 of the Guv'na Cup Finals. Game was still going on! They were down 2-0 in the 14th! They loaded the bases but the game ended on a K. Had they scored 2, I would have driven over to McCoy....
Did you know that the Sox magic number for clinching a playoff berth is the same as eliminating the Yankees from the AL east?

I was at McCoy last night. Unbelievable game

Before Salty's slam, I actually tweeted that he should lay down a bunt to beat the shift. Victorino probably would have scored easily. Of course, he scored pretty easily anyway.
Relevant numbers now down to 6 and 2!
