It's okay to admit you're scared. Believe me, I'm scared, too.
Since the better part of the past two decades have been kind to Boston Red Sox fans, it's easy to forget just how often the franchise has been saddled with yet another factoid that begins with the words "worst ever."
Squandering a nine-game wild-card lead would be the biggest wild-card-related collapse in MLB history.
Now the Red Sox are not safe with only a two-game lead in the Wild Card, but before you break your knuckles pounding the panic button, I'm going to try and soothe the Nation's troubled collective soul.
The Red Sox are still very likely to make the playoffs, and I can prove it.
