My guess is a lot of you have been rooting for the Cardinals for the past week or so. Not that you all grew up where I did — trust me, my friends and family back in Missouri have been fired up — but this is a Yankees blog, and it’s hard to believe many of you are actively rooting for the Red Sox.
Question is, do you have one more day of patience to keep rooting that way?
The Red Sox won two of three in St. Louis, and tonight’s Game 6 begins with Boston one win away from a championship. More significantly for the Yankees, Boston is one win away from ending the World Series. With a Red Sox win tonight, the offseason schedule would finally get started. Eligible players would officially become free agents on Thursday. Qualifying offers would be announced by Monday. Players would be free to sign anywhere by Tuesday.
It’s been more than four weeks since the Yankees season came to an end, and we’ve all been waiting for the real offseason to begin. Are you willing to wait one more day to keep the Red Sox from winning a title tonight?
