Welcome to the 2010 Red Sox Playoffs! Starting early (August)? This may be as good as it gets.

There you have it.  To me this weekend is the Sox playoffs for the season. 

If they play well and take 2 of 3 they are barely in hunt.

If they sweep they are squarely in the hunt.

Anything less and they are effectively eliminated, unless the wrong Sox take a series from the Yanks.

That not enough?  Still too early too feel like the playoffs?  Look at the way each team lined up their pitching (...sort of)

Tonight:  Lester vs Price
Tomorrow:  Buchholz vs Garza
Sunday:  Lackey v. Shields

Games 1 and 2 are playoff match ups.  Game 3 is not as sexy but is a realistic possibility for game 3 starts in October also.


I submit that at least for tonight it's worth some beer and an ear, if not a couple eyes to see if the Sox can somehow pull a pennant race out of the ER and walk into September within a series of the WC.

So grab your Sam, find a seat or stand or just listen to Joe on your porch.   It's going to be a fun series, it could be the last series meaningful series the Sox play in 2010 or it could be the start of an improbable run toward October.
