    Last year in the midst of a run for the AL East pennant, when the Sox rattled off 18 wins over 21 games, there was never a long streak of consecutive wins. Five, or Six games, may have been the season high win streak all season long. This year nothing has changed. The Sox rattled off 5 wins in a row seemingly without effort and they might win the next five, but not before a loss Saturday night. If you follow streaks and trends and gut intentions you knew the Sox were going to lose Saturday night.
    It is a wasted effort; we came into this game on a nice high, a nice winning
    streak. They put us back in our place."-- Johnny Damon
    It can't go with out being said that the Red Sox were the last team in the league to be bageled this year.

    Having not been shutout until June 18 is impressive. Too bad it was against the Pirates. Pittsburgh seems to be having fun with the AL East.

    Dude, the Red sox won 10 straight in Aug/Sep in the middle of a torrid run of something like 25 wins out of 30, at one stage it was ridiculous

    That was my point, even when they went on that tear (21 wins out of 25)the 10 game win streak was the longest of the season by far (not counting the eight game win streak in the post season). 6 games was the next longest (once) and five only happened a few times.
