Three wishes

In order:

1) Sox sweep the Angels in three.

Always the most satisfying outcome of any series. Would allow the Sox to rest up before the next series.

2) Sox win in four.

Still good. Would allow the Sox to clinch at Fenway and still give them time to rest before the next series.

3) Sox in in five.

Would have Red Sox Nation biting its nails until Wednesday, but I have to confess - in case the gods of baseball are listening - that this is my secret favourite wish of the three, because on Wednesday night I'll be in Washington, D.C. on business, and instead of watching the game alone in my living-room at 3am I could go and cheer the Sox on somewhere like this.
