Assuming new threads are good, after last night's win I have reenergised for a final burst of enthusiasm.

For expedience limited the contenders to KC, Minnesota, Cleveland and Boston - ignoring the 3 other teams which are just at .500 (Detroit, Seattle and Tampa Bay; and assuming the Bregmans will win the AL West).

Someone may have done this already (and apologies to RR from last year), but here is the remaining schedule. Sox are 38-34 tonight after the Toronto win. If we need 88 wins, the Sox need to go 20-10.

Detroit (3) - need 2-1

NYM (3) - need 2-1

NYY (4) - 2-2

TBR (3) - 2-1

Toronto (3) - 2-1

KC: 17/29. CLE, HOU 4,

CLE: 14/29.

MIN 14/30.

By the way, the Twins and Guardians are both 3-7 last 10 games. Red Sox 4-6. Royals 7-3.

So the Sox really need to make hay the next 2 weeks if they want to be in the hunt for the last WC. Otherwise "disengagement day" (thanks @Sin Duda ) looms.

I will update this post every 3-4 games and add any relevant teams if needed.

28/8 Edit: going to need to take 2 from the Twins anyway. Gets the 20 wins other posters mentioned.
