In other AL East news, the smokin' hot Blue Jays won again last night. That makes 12 of 13 for them. They're now 6.5 games back in the wild card, meaning if they win three of four or sweep the four-game series at Fenway Park this weekend, we've got a race.
What's above is a pretty benign quote to highlight, it's understood, but what makes it noteworthy is this:
It was published by the Boston Globe's blogger. It's not the words of some delusional Blue Jays fanboy blogger, or even a segue into a hilarious story by Mike Toth about his grandfather and the Calgary Cowboys of the WHA. No, it's an honest to goodness observation from a completely neutral chroniciler of the game.
We've got a race. (I'm choosing to ignore the "if" for a moment).
So, then, if what Mr. Globe blogger says is true (and he's from Boston so it must be) then does that mean that tonight--dare I say it--is...wait for it...
