The CURSE is BACK!
) If you weren’t watching ESPN this evening you missed some serious baseball drama. The Boston Red Sox and the Atlanta Braves both managed to historically squander large September 1st wild card leads (9 and 8 1/2 games respectively), loose their final games, and then watch their dogged pursuers (Tampa Bay Rays and St. Louis Cardinals) win their final games and take the last two wild card spots. The sequence of the Red Sox blowing a 3-2 lead to the Baltimore Orioles and nearly simultaneously having the Rays cap a extra inning comeback in a game they were down 7-0 to the New York Yankees was really the best baseball has to offer in terms of drama.
