Trying to 'Keep the Faith'

Anybody that reads this site with any regularity knows that I always try to stay positive when it comes to the sports teams that I follow. Even when things are at their worst, I always like to believe that there is a chance to win a game or have a successful season, but I gotta say, The Red Sox are sure making it hard for me to continue to believe in them right now.

They had the chance to pick up two games against the Yankees this weekend while playing against a struggling team and instead they got swept and fell further down in the standings. The fact that The Red Sox have remained in striking distance in the standings has been like a life-vest for my belief that they could still make a run for a playoff spot, but they continue to slide further and further back with almost every series.

Is this the same team that was closing in on a team record for consecutive wins earlier this season?

Sometimes I'd really like to just throw in the towel on this baseball season and just enjoy the games that are left, regardless of their meaning in the standings. September is almost here and this next series against The A's could be the straw that breaks the camel's back, or it could be the series that rejuvenates my hope that The Sox can still remain in contention for the playoffs.
