While I am a Yankee, I am not a Yankees fan.
As a lifelong New England sports fan I have had my share of disappointing seasons. Luckily, that has changed in the last decade as first the Patriots got their stuff together followed by the Red Sox.
Now that July is practically behind us with August bearing down and Autumn hot on it's heels it is time for every BoSox fan to start getting nervous. Right now they are leading the Yankees by 8 (standings). But you start to asking yourself, when will the slide begin? When will the disappointment start?
But, for now they are ahead of the Yanks by 8, which is all that really matters.
