Congratulations to Seattle Mariners for at one point actually coming within two runs of Redsocks' lead Sunday

It was the fifth -- (the Daily News Fifth, had it been a Yankee game) -- when those pesky, meddlesome Mariners actually pulled within two runs of Boston, making the score 5-3.

Seattle has now lost 15 in a row, bad news for the Yankees, because no team keeps losing forever. Visits to Yankee Stadium are like healing balms to pitchers who cannot hold down last place teams. We've seen it, time and again. Expect career days for pitchers we've never heard of and will never hear from again. 

On the other hand, Boston keeps winning... but can't seem to shed us from its rearview mirror.  Will Adrian Gonzalez really bat .350 this year? Is Jacoby Ellsbury really the best CF in baseball? Is Beckett really back? Will they ever lose?
