We all remember the 2004 Red Sox coming back from 0-3, but I’m just not seeing it this time. The Red Sox honestly thought they were a better team than the Yankees that year and didn’t think they should have ever been down in the first place.
More troublesome to me than the mathematical improbability is some of the things I heard from the A’s clubhouse today.
"We’re running into a better team. They’re
knocking down everyone in their path." — Eric Chavez.
I like Chavez. He’s an honest guy. But that might have been a little too honest.
Can this be a competitive series still? I don’t know. I’d be surprised. But then again, it’s baseball.
