For the record, I am a fan of the series. Obviously, it would be better if the Sox won the Series and the Yankees finished behind Tampa in every story, but asking for perfection is a bit much.
Seriously, though, I started reading this story fully expecting to enjoy it as much as the other stories in the series that I've read. And on the technical merits of the writing, as well as the plot and characterization, it was certainly as good as any of them.
Personally, though, I couldn't enjoy the story. It's quite possibly only my own issues; others who've enjoyed the series may find this one just as good. Readers who are overly sensitive to certain content which doesn't quite rise to the needed level of detail in this story to require being coded may want to pass on it, though.
