After last night's 3-0 loss to the Tigers, the Red Sox concluded their week at 5-2, and 30-23 on the season. Our Player of the Week is big pickup Carl Crawford, who seems to be settling in for the first time this year, as this week he batted .423/3/8, to make him .236/4/21 on the season. He has really been struggling early on, but hopefully once summer comes he'll be the Carl Crawford that we hated for so long in Tampa Bay. Our pitcher of the week is Josh Beckett, who allowed just 3 runs in 13 1/3 innings, he is now 4-2/1.80/63, as he's been great all year. The game of the week was Wednesday (5/25/11), when the Red Sox exploded 14-2 on the Indians, as every player got a hit, and Jon Lester was completely dominant. The performance of the week was Thursday (5/26/11) as Carl Crawford scored 2 runs, had 3 RBIs, and 2 triples in a 4-5 day! This was a very good week for the Sox, and it will vault them into first place in the AL East.
