Granted, every series is big, but this one seemes to look HUGE for Boston. I was just looking at Boston's schedule after this (6/29-7/1) series:

3 AT Atlanta
---day off---
3 vs Oakland
3 vs Texas
---A/S Break---
4 AT Anaheim
2 AT Seattle
3 vs Baltimore (in two days, no day off between BAL and SEA)
3 vs NYY (no day off)

My point is: Leading up to the next series against the Yanks, they will have just played 9 games in 8 days, with no days off and on both coasts. Now, of course they could do fine in the 7/23-7/25 series, and also in the 6/29-7/1 games as well, for they are a strong team.

As of right now, the sawx just lost 4-0, and being that the Yanks don't play until tonight, the Yankee lead is 5, and 6 in the loss column. If they stay even until 6/29 (Yanks have 3 in Baltimore, and 3 home to NYM - Boston has 3 each at home to MIN and PHI), and then lose more ground by 7/2, that is a bastard of a stretch going into the next series against the Yanks. I realize that 5 of the 8 in that stretch are against sub-.500 teams, but its the coast-to-coast trip, with no days off and a quick doubleheader that does it.

I was just throwing this out there for the Bosox fans (or anyone else of course), just out of curiousity for the Boston fan mindset, is all. No disrespect intended.

Truthfully, I'm not even thinking division right now. Oakland/Texas before the break and Anaheim for 4 out of the chute are more important in the bigger picture. And Minnesota/Philly are slightly more imposing than Baltimore (for the love of God, don't pitch Ponson and his hideous career record against the Yankees) and Mets. If the schedule breaks right, Oakland has to face Schmidt twice, which is a huge break in the Wild Card race.
Of course, 'Eugene' Francona might decide to rest his starters during the Yankees series, as the pressure might be too much and they might need to meditate. Manages 4 years in the N.L. and still doesn't know what a double switch is and doesn't go to his big bats as pinch hitters in an N.L. Park. I almost miss Butch Hobson at this point.
