Unless of course, you're a New York Yankee fan then this is the same as politics, but the Boston Red Sox showed why they are the class of the AL East, (at least right now). The Sox beat the Detroit Tigers 7-1 in a game where Dice-K impressed Jim Leland. With this win, the Red Sox go up 8.5 games over the Yankees.
Now, being a Red Sox fan, I'm pretty pessimistic that this will not last into the home stretch. However, it is nice to see the Sox performing well. Just hope the team stays healthy.
