    Good point. If they beat the Yankees they do have another 4 games to win. Will they come out of the series emotionally exhausted or filled with “piss and vinegar.”

    From a fan’s perspective you have to be a bit of a masochist to enjoy rooting for the Cubs or the Sox. 😉

    I expect the Cards to take it all.

    Yankke fans should not be worried. There is a historical inevitability to the result of this series that Boston cannot overcome (as a Cubs fan, I know something about the power of baseball curses). My personal feeling is that the Yankees (or at least the ghosts of Yankees past) purposely blew games 4-6, just so that when they win the series, it will be that much more painful to the Red Sox and their fans. That’s probably why the Sox will have a lead at some point tonight. And for those of us who do not have strong feelings one way or the other, at least it’s making good (albeit excruciatingly long) theater.

    Interesting question is if the Sox win tonight (obviously that’s hypothetical; like saying “if the Cubs win the pennant…”), will they realize they still have another series to play? After all, Boston has gotten to the World Series before (48, 67, 75, 86) only to lose each time in a Game 7. Even if they beat the Yankees, it does not mean the curse is dead.
