On the radio today, Greg Rakestraw asked me about the mood of Boston and New York. I don't really know what the "mood" is, nor do I really care, but it's a standard radio question. My answer was that it seems like this season seems set up to be very close. We knew it would be close back in March, but seemed to forget that the season equals things out in various patterns. I also said that I wondered if it wouldn't come down to a Bucky Dent or Aaron Boone situation.
While saying it, I searched through the dusty archives of my brain for a similar but converse situation. Is there one where the Red Sox triumphed?
And does it matter much who wins the division and who the wild card is?
