And finally, from the New York Daily News:
This can't be playing well in New York, certainly not with Yankee fans. Enough already with all of this beard-tugging, for one thing, but more to the point, the Red Sox really do look some like some team of destiny, as tiresome as that may sound.
How else do you explain their uncanny knack for delivering in huge moments this October, despite some hideous batting averages, as they move closer to capping off one of the most remarkable turnaround seasons in baseball history with a championship.
Indeed, the numbers aren't pretty for the Sox, yet they are ... on the verge of winning it all.
