Apparently we're doing this whole "baseball" thing again. This time, though, it doesn't feel like there's a point.
If the Red Sox win, then they're still just one up in the loss column. If they lose...it's a tie.
It's not logical, obviously. This game is a separate entity, and all the Sox can do is to win as many games as they can. But somehow this one just doesn't feel too good.
