Wild Card Races

Wild card races are fun. Wild card collapses - not so much.

I've only been to two baseball games this year but have been lucky enough to witness the beginning of the collapse for both of the city's baseball teams.

I went to a Cubs game way back in April when they actually had a winning record of 14-10. They lost 8-0 to the Pirates that day and went on to a 4-21 meltdown over the next month.

My first Sox game this year was their 7-2 loss to the Red Sox right before the break. They went into that game 56-29 and have gone 3-10 since.

I'll be at the series finale against the Twins tomorrow and hopefully work some reverse mojo that will get the Sox back on track.
