Take a look at the the last 4 games of the season...October 1st through the 4th.
Yeah, that's right...4 games in Boston!
The way the season is shaping up, these 4 games will very likely be critical to the Red Sox getting into the playoffs.
Could we get a bit of revenge for 2007?
Would knocking the Bosox out of the playoffs be sweet?
In reality, there is every reason to believe that the Boston Red Sox will sweep the Tribe just like the Texas Rangers did over the last 3 games. Look at this Indians' team; all of the true veterans are traded away with the exception of Travis Hafner, Jhonny Peralta, and Kelly Shoppach, and of course Grady Sizemore who has been shut down by injuries for the remainder of the season. Our most experienced guys are Asdrubal Cabrera, Shin Soo Choo, and Peralta. The remainder of the team is AAA and AA players.
How could they ever expect to compete with a playoff-bound team in the last series of the season?
Well, these guys are hungry as well as talented. Sure they are raw rookies but what have they got to lose?
Even if Boston wins the first 3 games, it still could come down to the final game of the season.
Look, right now we will take any win, no matter how big or small. But if we can ruin Boston's playoff hopes, now that is S-W-E-E-T!
They're getting ready for the playoffs in Boston,
Let's see if we can spoil their plans!
