It's official

Even with a favorable schedule and everything in their favor, the Red Sox have collapsed. It's all but finished already. The bullpen has fallen apart (Okajima's arm is hurting, Papelbon's been ineffective two times in a row, and Gagné has been horrid, with no sign of recovery), Wakefield came back from a missed start decidedly mortal again, and we've got a mess of hurting offensive players. Yes, they've all but guaranteed a playoff berth, but right now we're looking at a 3-game sweep by Cleveland or Anaheim.

Oh well. Football season's looking good so far. I can't even be too bitter about this, because it's only been 3 years since we won it all. As opposed to 86 the last time.
