Red Sox Magic Number - 60
With the win over the Royals the Red Sox Magic Number is now down to 60. This gives me the opportunity to mention the Buckminsterfullerene better known as buckyballs - a spherical molecule with the formula C60. The geodesic dome of molecules.
I could have mentioned that Hanley Ramirez wore the number 60 in his cup of coffee with the Red Sox in 2005 (2 games) before being traded to the Marlins in the offseason but buckyballs seemed more fun to talk about.
