Red Sox Are Struggling
What does this picture have to do with how the Red Sox are doing? It doesn't, but you're welcome. Just trying to lift your spirits a little.
The Sox are are 5-8 in the month of July, and are about to go on the road to face Oakland, Seattle and Anaheim before returning home to face Triple Crown threat Miguel Cabrera and the Detroit Tigers. As for the Walking Wounded, Boston has the most players on the disabled list, and the most of their original 25-man roster as well.
If any team was missing just one or two of those guys, their season would be down the tubes, so kudos to Terry Francona for staying competitive.
On the bright side, the Red Sox hosted their 600th straight sellout at Fenway Park. At some point, the injuries are going to get so ridiculous, that the best idea would be to pull out season ticket holders and put them in the fray. They seem to be more reliable than the players anyway.
