Well, this is about as unexpected as a pol cheating on taxes — Shaughnessy has tapped out one of his annual "believah" puff pieces.
Talk about a jinx.
Seriously, the perennial CHB "The Sox look like they are ready for a big stretch run" column is always ominous.
Yeah, it's like your phone showing you've got a voice mail from Mel Gibson waiting for you.
To be fair, though, Shaughnessy's onto something when he writes, "There's nothing crazy about the notion that this team can make up 4 1/2 games on Tampa Bay over the final two months of the season."
Yeah, I confess I'm feeling ass half-full these days myself.
