Doing the math... with tears in our eyes

Us and Them each have 38 games left.

We're 5 behind in the loss column.

Yeah, there's always the chance the Redsocks pull a 2007 Mets.

Realistically, let's figure they play their usual .573 percentage. If so, they go 21-17 the rest of the way.

To beat them, we must go 26-12.

We must win 7 of every 10.

We play the bastards 6 times. Three here, three there. If we win 5 of 6, they're still ahead of us.

And if the sonzabitches tank, Minnesota or Chicago could beat us anyway.

We have four with the Whitesox. Three more with the Angels in Anaheim.
