The Red Sox who started the season 0-6 and 2-10 are in first place by themselves.
(Thank you A. J. Burnett’s high pitch count and mediocre Yankee middle relief.)
So now any combination of Red Sox wins and Yankee losses that equal 112… and the Red Sox are the 2011 American League Eastern Division Champions.
And they got there BEFORE Memorial Day. They had a disappointing first third of the season and are STILL in first place by themselves.
Ain’t no stopping us now!
