This week the Red Sox lost a series to the Rockies (1-2) and won a series against the Giants (2-1) giving them a 3-3 week. Our Player of the Week is Mike Cameron (right) who had 1 home run and 5 RBIs putting his stats up to .266/1/8 as he has gotten a lot better after his injury. Dustin Pedroia (.292/12/41) and Clay Buchholz (10-4/2.45/64) both got injured this week. Pedroia was placed on the 15-day DL and I don't know what happened to Buchholz. In any case there goes our best hitter and our best pitcher so... we'd better have some pretty darn good replacements! We acquired utility man Eric Patterson today (see in earlier post). Next week the Sox only play 5 games, a 2-game set against the Rays and a 3-game set against the Orioles. The Rays lost today so we are in sole possession of 2nd place and the wild card!!!!
