For the third straight year (and the first time in club history) the Boston Red Sox have qualified for postseason play. Sure it's via the controversial wildcard, but hey, the past 3 World Series Champs have been wildcard winners. As division winners, on Tuesday the Yanks get to face the Angels (in Anaheim, mind you), who finished the season on a 14-2 tear, while the wildcard game features a Chi-town matchup between the Sox -- Red vs. White. While losing the 4 game lead we had with only 21 to play hurt, we'll take this matchup any day. This is a White Sox team that nearly made history by putting together the biggest collapse in mlb history. Yeah, we'll take that.
