Will the Boston Red Sox make the playoffs? Can they overcome two teams within their own division? I think the answer is yes and if they do it will go down as one of the most resilient teams in BoSox history. The dominant reason i think this attributed to the fact that this is the most healthy they have been all season and a team down in Philadelphia essentially doing the same. Utley came back last night and Howard perhaps next week and they are just two games behind Nl East leader Braves. Now the BoSox are in a similar position. They two games remaining agains the depleted Angels then host Toronto for three and then Seattle for three games before having the big show down at Tampa. If you like looking for extended winning streaks then Boston may be the team for you over the next 10 days.
