Today, the Red Sox lost 3-5 to the Phillies, getting denied the sweep and giving them a 4-3 week. David Ortiz (right) moved to the front of the pack with his 3rd Player of the Week as he had 0 homers and 6 RBIs. Papi is now .251/12/39 as he and Kevin Youkilis share the team lead with 12 home runs. The hot Yankees won again today and have tied the Rays for first place. So we are 4 games behind those two teams and sitting in 3rd place in the AL East despite having the 4th best record in baseball. Next week, the Sox play the Diamondbacks and Dodgers at Fenway as Manny Ramirez will return to Fenway for the first time since the trade that brought Jason Bay to Boston. On Tuesday, Clay Buchholz (8-4/2.52/50) and Ian Kennedy (3-3/3.17/71) as both pitchers are having good years and it could be a good game. The Sox are on a roll, let's take advantage of the Rays' scuffling.
