This thread is being scheduled before the Jays finish their game, but right now they're in position to knock the Yankees out of the AL East race on their own, which means the Red Sox are on to new, more unlikely goals. Goals with little-to-no room for error. If they fail to meet them it's not a huge deal. But they may as well do what they can with the five games remaining to them.
And hey, maybe the Orioles will fight back and give us a chance after all? 5-o'-clock me has no idea.
