We're back in the playoffs!

The Sox clinched a spot in the tournament, as Bill Parcells liked to call it, with a come from behind 8-6 win over the D-Rays tonight. The Sox came back from a 6-5 deficit brought about by a 3-run homer by fellow Northeastern alum Carlos Pena. Tampa closer Al Reyes gave up home runs to Varitek and Lugo in the 9th for the Sox win. Combined with the Tigers 7-4 loss to Kansas City tonight, the Sox go to the post-season for the 4th time in five years.

The Yankees won in a 10 inning slugfest over the Blue Jays today, so the magic number to take the division is down to 6. Just over a week to go until the playoffs start, and all the sleep deprivation that entails. I'm hoping to be really tired by the end of October.
