The Red Sox are just counting the days until the season finally comes to an end.
The 2012 Major League Baseball season is coming down the home stretch.
The end can't come soon enough for the Boston Red Sox, who are suffering through their worst season in recent memory. After watching a litany of stars leave town including Adrian Gonzalez, Carl Crawford, Josh Beckett, and Kevin Youkilis, Boston fans are left with a shell of their former team and a manager who is self-described as miserable.
In other places, the prospects for a glorious October seem very real. The Tampa Bay Rays and Baltimore Orioles are fighting it out for a spot in the postseason and will commence a three-game series on Tuesday.
However, it's the Los Angeles Angels who are finally making their long-awaited charge, trailing Oakland by 2.5 games for the top-spot in the Wild Card standings. The two teams start a crucial four-game set at Angel Stadium on Monday.
