Don't get me wrong... I'm loving this...

But this is getting ridiculous!
14 1/2 game lead over the Yankees?
In May?

22 games ago, the Yankees were 5 back in the loss column and unveiled their new/old toy Roger Clemens.

And this inspired the Yankees so much that they dropped 9 games in the loss column in 21 games.

That's almost impossible!

If they keep falling like this, Clemens might be requesting a trade!

Mariano Rivera has 3 saves. THREE!
Hideki Okajima has 4 saves and he isn't even the main closer!

I mean it can't keep up like this, can it?
The Red Sox are on a pace to go 114-48
The Yankees are on a pace to go 68-94... with the Sox finishing 46 games ahead of them.

By the way, the magic number to eliminate the Yankees is 98.
And note thatISN'T the Magic number for the Division.

Pretty soon we Sox fans will have to stop checking on the Yankees and start scoreboard watching for the Orioles and Blue Jays.

Maybe in honor of Pat and Christin, we'll be checking the scores of the Devil Rays as well.

But the Red Sox CAN'T be this good.
The Yankees CAN'T POSSIBLY be this bad.

Can they?

    It's sad that Rivera only has three saves; it's sadder that that's three saves out of five opportuntiies.

    Who does this team think they are, the Kansas City Royals?
