At the start of September they had a nine game lead over the Tampa Rays for the final playoff spot. And on the last night of regular series they lost their final game; thereby eliminating themselves from the playoffs.
Sidebar: Okay I know some people don’t watch baseball (or have it their country.) So here’s an article that described what happened. Sorry to my overseas friends. I couldn’t think of a football, cricket, or rugby analogy 🙂
The “Red Sox Collapse” will become legendary because they’re a really good team. They have excellent hitting. A great closer. And an okay starting rotation.
In other words, there should be no reason why they missed the playoffs with one month to go.
But it happened.
What’s my point?
With an Internet business you could experience the same thing. One day you’re making a solid income with a loyal group of followers. And then suddenly you get hit with a disaster – Something that destroys part (or all) of your livelihood.
