1. The Sox go into Boston and take two games next weekend. Vazquez vs Beckett, Buehrle vs Matsuzaka.
2. The Sox will go into New York and end all Yankee hope for the post-season.
3. I will drive to Minnesota and blow off a few days of work to watch the Sox take the Central.
4. ESPN collapses upon itself leaving a giant crater in Bristol when the Red Sox and Yankees both fail to make the play-offs.
5. There will be at least two comments hammering me for my optimism.
