This probably deserves its own article, but anyone notice that the Red Sox came back to win against Cleveland after being down 3 games to 1... after enjoying a day off? The day off came between games 4 and 5 at Cleveland when normally they wouldn't have had a day off. But scheduling quirks gave them the rest and may have helped shift momentum back to the Sox. Days off allowed the Sox to beat the Yanks in '04 (rain out) and Detroit to beat the Yanks in '06 (rain out again). That's my theory and I'm stickin' to it.
