The West Coast takes its toll. A tie against the Mariners is all we can hope for now, and that's not a terribly impressive feat in itself. The good news is that the Orioles and Rays are struggling as well, so with a win tonight the Sox could actually gain ground on the whole.
Assuming I didn't just jinx a couple of relatively close games.

It's a relatively normal game time with a hittable lefty on the mound. No excuses for not waking up here.
