Weekly News

This week's winner of Player of the Week is Dustin Pedroia, so that is #2! He hit 3 homers and 6 RBI, and led himself to a highlight of his career as against the Orioles he hit is first career multihomer game. He also led the Sox to a pretty great week as they went 5-1, sweeping the Rays for the first time this year.(and probably last year too) Pedroia is now batting .297 with 13 HRs, and 63 RBIs as this has been a great year for him, although not comparing to his MVP campain last year. This week the Sox lost 1 to finish a 4-game series against the White Sox, then swept the O's and Rays. Of course the winer of the sweeper against the Rays was a guy who has been about as close to untouchable as you can get lately, Jon Lester. He is 13-7 with a 3.29 ERA and 211 Ks. Only 3 more Weekly News posts left, the scope of the people who could potentially win Player of the Year are Jason Bay, (7) David Ortiz, (6) and Kevin Youkilis. (5) The Sox are looking at the Wild Card spot at 84-58!
