Sox Shouldn't Pop Any Corks Over Next Win

No Sham-Pag-Knee For You!
When (and if) the Red Sox win one more game it will signify that they have passed the Bobby Valentine Win Barrier of 69—brilliantly achieved in the 2012 season. However, to paraphrase Pulp Fiction's Winston Wolf, "Well, let's not start getting too excited quite yet." Indeed. Getting 70 wins the year after winning a World Series Championship is nothing to pop corks over. In fact, the Red Sox will set a new MLB mark—no team before them has ever gone from worst (2012) to first (2013) to worst (2014). Ever. Also nothing to break out the bubbly for. So, let's hope win #70 (if it does come) is treated with the dignity it deserves—none.
