I’ve been waiting for this point — it means that if the average outcome is that the Sox LOSE every series 2-1, and the Yankees WIN every series 2-1...still they don’t catch us.
14 out of 44. 31.8% needed
Also: .688 (current win percentage) X 21 (games left) = 14.45

So if they keep pace, the Yankees can win every single game left and still not catch them. (Looks like this became true after yesterday's win actually)

one 13 who is of course still here:

and another 13 who the above 13 decided the team was better without just before Memorial Day:

also a certain free agent from 2011 should not be posted here
