The Curse of 2004

It's 3-1 in the bottom of the fourth inning in the Boston/Cleveland game right now, but there's still time for a quick post that was knocked loose in my head after seeing Kevin Millar throw out the first pitch tonight.

When the Indians went up 3-1 in the series last week I got a glimpse at just how distorted Red Sox baseball has become following the 2004 playoffs.

While most rational fans can take a series deficit like that and start to prepare mentally for elimination, the '04 playoffs make it difficult to keep from rationalizing unnatural comebacks in a fan's mind.

I am still working on whether or not that's a good thing.
