Well, I guess a sweep in Yankee Stadium was a bit too much to ask.

Suppan's performance was encouraging, though. Three hits, two runs in seven innings. If he can keep that kind of performance up, the Sox have a chance of overtaking the Evil Empire.

The Red Sox are certainly fighting against history (aren't they always?). The Yankees have never lost in 35 times after having been in first place on September 1. They've also never lost a lead of more than 6 games. The Sox were 7 and 1/2 games back earlier in the season. So they're 2 and 1/2 back (3 in the loss column) with 20 to go. And, with Seattle's loss, they're 1 and 1/2 up in the wild card race. They only have 3 more games against a team that's over .500 (White Sox). Baltimore probably worries me the most. The Sox lost 5 of 7 to them in August. Turning that record around would be a good thing.

The less said about events on the other end of New York state, the better. Bledsoe and Milloy both played well. Why can't we get guys like that? I said to someone at work that I thought it would be a small upset if the Pats beat Buffalo at home, but I thought it would be a lot closer than 31-0. Yikes.
