Let's be a little optimistic, shall we? This has been a year of firsts. The first time a team will go from worst to first to worst. The first time the Astros won a game a Fenway. And, yesterday, the first time the Mariners have swept a series at America's Most Cramped Ballpark. Forget that Boston left 15 men on base—while still scoring six runs in an 8-6 loss. Forget that they left the tying runs on second and third in the ninth. Forget that Allen Webster pitched like Noah Webster. It's morning on Yawkey Way! Still 14 wins needed to eclipse Bobby V.!
