Last season, the Red Sox got their 69th win on September 23rd—a 2-1 victory over the Orioles at Camden Yards. The Sons Of Bobby Valentine went on to lose their final eight games on the way to a decades-worst 69-93 mark. Forty-nine days earlier on the calendar, your Carmine Hose have collected their 69th victory of 2013. It will surely be one to remember. Falling behind 5-0 to the 'Lastros'. Four passed balls in the first inning—tying an MLB record. Two HRs for Jacoby Ellsbury. A four-hit night for David Ortiz. Four RBIs off the bench for Jonny Gomes. Poor Stephen Wright'sMLB debut marred by a first inning from Hell. But, isn't it the mark of a championship-level team that they pull out wins like this? Don't winning managers survive bonehead decisions like starting knuckle-baller Wright in a pennant race with a clearly unprepared Ryan Lavarnway? We don't believe in 'destiny', but this team sure makes a good case for it.
