I’ll pump the brakes here a little bit: We know that if you get into the playoffs, anything can happen (hello, Red Sox 2003, Red Sox 2004).

The Revolution are hovering over the playoff line, sitting sixth in the Eastern Conference.

In some ways, it’s fair to say the Revs are hanging on by the skin of their teeth.
