The teams the Sox have left to play for the most part are at least good enough to still be in the running for the last of the new expanded post season spots. The Sox on the other hand are bottom dwellers. They had their shot to bulk up their record on the teams in the AL that cannot even manage a 400 or better winning record. Now the Sox are stuck playing out the season against teams that are actually at least in the running for the 3 wild card spots.......with......the expected results it would appear.

So now I am stuck with recognizing that my own projection made at the start of this season of woe that the Sox would be a 500 team in a sea of crap was very likely........OPTIMISITIC.
