We can get carried away with illusions of “momentum” in this game.
Here’s my advice: celebrate momentum when it’s working in your favor; ignore momentum when it’s not.
Right now, the Sox clearly don’t have any positive momentum going — but only if we look at the last week.
looking at this short period of time is such a downer, let’s look at
the whole season and acknowledge this: The Red Sox are tied for first
place in the Wild Card race. All we have to do is play good baseball going forward, starting today, and we’ll land in the playoffs again.
Those four games against the Yankees hurt a lot, but they’re history. We’re still in good shape. Time to cowboy up.
