Nightmare Of The NOG

On this coming Monday, September 12th, post-season ticket payments are due on Yawkey Way. In a most uncomfortable coincidence, the standings that morning could show the Red Sox only 3.5 games in front of Tampa for the Wild Card berth. Talk about your NOG Nightmares! Of course a sweep in Tampa would send the Carmine Hose 9.5 ahead of the Feisty Fish—allowing John Henry to sleep well Monday night. Were September weekends supposed to be this angst-filled in 2011?
