Earlier today, Jonathan Papelbon blew another win, and the Sox lost 5-7 to the White Sox, concluding their being swept. Our Player of the Week is Victor Martinez (right), who had 2 home runs and 6 RBIs this week, he is now .289/13/55 as he is having an ok season by his standards, this is his first Player of the Week. This was a 2-4 week for the Red Sox as they are picking the worst possible time to be cold, as they stand 10 games back of first place and 8 of the wild card. Josh Beckett had a pretty good start today, allowing 3 runs in 6.1 innings, only one earned, he is now 4-4/5.91/95 as he has been a major disappointment this year. Tomorrow, the Sox play the Rays, Jon Lester (15-8/3.27/186) and Jeff Niemann (10-5/3.97/107) will pitch. The Sox are going to miss the playoffs, I'm sorry, hopeful fans, but it's true.
