I generally stay away from emotional posts because reading the feeling-laden posts that dominate other blogs, I believe they don’t offer any genuine insight.
That said, there’s no escaping it today. If the Sox lose, they’ll fall below .500 and could slide to eight games back in the standings. The season is over.

Some players that will be playing for jobs next year…
The performance of these guys down the stretch will in part determine if they’ll be wearing Sox uniforms next year.
Here’s to next year.
