Wild Card Bitches!

Boston Red Sox rookie pitcher, Junichi Tazawa, celebrates his first trip to the playoffs

Clay Buccholz and the Boston Red Sox got lit up by Adam Lind and the mighty Toronto Blue Jays for the second straight night, but hey, we won the Wild Card! Thanks to the Texas Rangers loss to our ALDS opponent, Anaheim, the Sox backed in the playoffs like Barney Frank backs into the Ramrod.

So there it is, the Sox are back in the playoffs and ready to face a familiar foe. Boston has owned the Angels in the past, but what can we expect this October?

Heading into the final five games of the regular season the Sox have lost five straight and seven of nine. Boston is 39-42 on the road (no home advantage as a Wild Card), 2-4 in Anaheim this season and the Angels pitching staff is really coming together since the acquisition of a then-struggling Scott Kazmir.

Numbers aside, let’s hope the Sox cut the brakes, Wild Card bitches!
