The hopes of seeing the Boston Red Sox turn their season around and climb back into playoff contention is now a distant memory.
These days fans have to get used to watching the Sox try and ruin other teams’ playoff hopes, instead of watching them fight for the division or a wild card spot.
As the Sox open up a three-game series with the New York Yankees on Tuesday night, the team will try to end its season on a high note by playing spoiler to their divisional rivals. Of the team’s final 21 games this season, 18 of them are against the Yankees, Rays and Orioles. Each team is within two games of the division title and the Orioles currently hold a wild card spot, with the Rays only one game behind.
Cody Ross has been one of the lone bright spots for the Red Sox all season and wants to help his team end the season in a respectable manner.
