Weekly News

Today, the Red Sox lost 1-5 to the Tigers, and losing the series 1-2, givng them a 3-3 week as they are 19-19. David Ortiz (right) is our Player of the Week, he had 2 home runs and 7 RBIs, he is now .224/6/17 as he is definitely breaking out of his slump. The Red Sox had some nice pitching performances over the course of the week, by Jon Lester (3-2/3.91/54), John Lackey (4-2/4.86/31), Tim Wakefield (0-2/5.63/23), and Clay Buchholz (4-3/3.46/28) as I have been pleasantly surprised by Buchholz this year. Dustin Pedroia ended a 9-game homerless drought on Friday, he is a remarkable .289/8/25. Next week, the Sox have a difficult week as they face the Yankees in Yankee Stadium for 2 games, go back to Fenway to face the Twins for 2 games, and head to Philadelphia to start some interleague play. 19-19 is... just bad this late in the season. They need to have a good week against good competition, then I rest.

  1. It's been a tough week -- and a tough season. I'm beginning to feel like it's the old, pre-2004 Red Sox . . .
