The Red Sox return home to Boston where they receive another three days off, resting every boo boo, and setting up the next series, which starts at Fenway Park on Saturday, perfectly.
The numbers continue to stack up in the Red Sox favor.
They had 36 come-from-behind wins during the regular season and two in the ALDS. They also had 11 walkoff wins this year.
You want consistency? Boston longest losing streak all year was just three games.
Red Sox were tied with Rays for first in AL East on Aug. 24 before running away with the division from there.
How about this offense? When scoring five or more runs in a game this season, the Red Sox were 75-11.
The Sox were 78-5 when leading after seven innings.
At some point ... like, now! ... this team will get exactly what they deserve, which is applause.
