The tipping point as of first series

Predictions are often made and never revisited.

I wanted to hold myself to my original review of this weeks series and see where we are at in respect to the original Tipping Point predictions.

The Red Sox and Yankees finished their 3 game series this weekend, with the Red Sox taking 2 out of 3. The Rays played the Blue Jays and swept them. The Orioles played the Rangers and swept all 3 games too.

Looking at the positive scenario the Red Sox were to sweep the Yankees. The Rays and Orioles were to drop a game in their respective series.

Not quite, but close!

Standings at time of writing.

The Red Sox are in a terrific fight for this division, an a single slip has cost them 0.5 games in the standings. The Yankees have been put far back, but not quite out of it yet.

On to the next series with 4 games against the Rays. This is direct competition for first place in the division and the Rays are smoking hot.

Is a sweep out of the question?

Can we not dream of crushing the Rays over the next 4 games?
