Triple Weekly News
This race is getting ridiculous, I haven't been here for a few weeks, and the winner of three Player of the Week Awards is David Ortiz, that gives him 8 this year. Ortiz is .258/22/71 this year. In the past 3 weeks, the Red Sox went 9-8 after their 4-3 win today against the Tigers. Today the Yankees lost and the yesterday they won, the Red Sox are currently standing at 60-45, in 3rd place, and 6.5 games behind the Yankees for first place, and 5.5 behind the Rays for wild card. This is not the year for the Red Sox, I'm afraid, we probably won't make the playoffs. Next week, the Sox have a 4-game set against the Indians proceeding a 3-game series against the Yankees. Tomorrow, John Lackey (10-5/4.26/81) and Fausto Carmona (10-8/3.92/72). The Sox will have to be nearly perfect next week, so let's hope they are!
