Well, I'm feeling a little better this morning.

Josh Beckett won his 20th last night, becoming the first pitcher in two years to do so and the first Sox pitcher to do it since Curt Schilling in 2004. The Yankees lost to the Blue Jays last night, even after blowing a four run lead in the 9th. The Jays, who seem to be taking their spoiler role seriously, won the game with a home run in the top of the 14th.

So the magic number for the division is down to 7. The Sox can clinch a playoff berth with a win tonight and a Detroit loss to the Royals.

Although the American League playoff participants are pretty much decided, with only the identity of the AL East champion to be decided, things are a lot more interesting in the National League. The leaders in all three divisions are up by less than two games, and the Padres lead the Phillies by two games for the wild card.

It should be an exciting last week. I'd love to see the the Phillies overtake the Mets, and of course my Brewers have a game in the loss column to make up on the Cubs. Let's see what happens!
