The Final Six—The End Of A Long Nightmare

The End Is Near!
And so, it comes down to this. The dismal 2014 Red Sox season crawls to its final six home games—like Wile E. Coyote limping out of the desert in search of sustenance. If The Carmine Hose (68-88) don't win at least two of those games, there will be quite a celebration by a certain resident of Stamford, Connecticut. The first three tilts will be against the almost as pathetic Tamp Bay Rays (75-81), followed by three more against the 'all-but-eliminated-from-the-playoffs' New York Yankees (81-75). The only potential silver lining this weekend will be that The Bronx Embalmers have a good chance of being officially eliminated at Fenway Park. How sweet will it be if they're done after Saturday's game and Derek Jeter has to play his truly final game right here? In any event, Our Long National Nightmare will finally be over and Ben Cherington can start spending John Henry's billions. It can't come soon enough!
