Whole is better than the sum of the parts

As a Yankee fan I compare this Sox team to the Yanks and feel like it’s all about the intangibles

On paper this team doesn’t look as great as it is. But there is something about the character and leadership of the team that makes the difference

And I also say this as someone who feels Cora should have had a lifetime ban for cheating. He is an extraordinary manager but a corrupt and corrupting individual

As the lesser of two evils I am rooting for the Sox to beat the Astros. And then the NL winner to sweep after that!
