Flirting With First

STEPHANIE GRAY ’09

The Red Sox still have their minds set on winning the AL East championship, and so long as they “play a good game” and beat the Cleveland Indians in the upcoming four game series, I think they could do it. The Sox seem to be making a good comeback after losing Manny Ramirez mid season and they have played pretty well in the weeks since then.

But even though the team has put themselves back together and played some good games, they are not cemented in first place. Currently they are down a game and a half and have been fighting with the Tampa Bay Rays for first place. The Rays and the Sox have been jumping ahead of one another, and then falling back, creating a roller coaster ride for fans everywhere. The Rays currently hold first place by a game and a half, but that could all change in one day if the Sox win and the Rays lose. I am confident that the Sox can take it all the way, yet again. We have built up a great team in the past couple of years, and with stars like Josh Beckett, Jason Varitek, David Ortiz, and Jacobe Ellesbury, we have potential to bring home another set of rings in the 2008 World Series.

On a different note, as we end the regular season, I feel it is of the utmost importance that we say farewell to Yankee stadium, regardless of what team you support. It is always sad to see such a rich historical park go, but it won’t be forgotten. The new Yankee Stadium will have a historical feel to it once pieces of the old stadium are moved in and preserved for future baseball generations.
