I post this in hopes that Curt Schilling will find the strength to carry this team one last time during this Lost Season and return them to second place. As Beth notes today, third is not a pretty place. The Globe provides reason for optimism (surprise!) — the Sox finish the season with the D-Rays and Orioles at home. If this were a pennant race, we’d be reserving our playoff tickets.
Instead, we must simply hope the Sox will remember that this is weak competition and play accordingly.
