How 'Bout Those Red Sox?
Ortiz is at 15 home runs, 45 RBI. Buchholz is the AL's first 9-game winner. The team has won 4 in a row, and sits just a game outside of first place in the AL East. It's like the ball is sitting on a tee for the Sox bats, and the pitchers are throwing against cardboard cut-outs. Beltre fell over and STILL jacked one a few feet shy of the Mass Pike.
This team is on right now. Since this time last month, they are 21-8. They have only lost 1 series against Cleveland, and tied against the Royals. Drew just went down with an injury, Cameron isn't playing every day, Ellsbury is still dealing with his injuries, and Beckett and Matsuzaka have been questionable for 3 weeks now, yet this team is still rolling right along. They've quietly snuck right back into the hunt. It'll will be interesting to see how they play out this month, traveling to Colorado, San Fransisco and then back to The Chapel.
