September 24, 2010

Will the Red Sox Play Spoilers for the Yankees in the AL East? Many Red Sox fans have abandoned the 2010 season ship weeks ago on, but for those who have kept the faith, this weekend has probably been marked down as the team's final chance to sneak into the postseason's backdoor.

A series sweep and a few Rays losses would keep the Sox alive in the wild card race, as they trail Tampa by seven games for the fourth playoff spot in the American League. Yes, it would take a miracle, but Red Sox Nation knows a few things about miracles.

This series is big for any Sox fan — even those who gave up days, weeks, or months ago. That's because the Sox have a chance to play spoilers for the Yankees' run at the AL East crown.

That's right, a sweep in the Bronx will prolong the Yankees' chance to clinch while allowing the Rays to sneak in and claim first place heading into the final full week of the regular season.
