Weekly News

The Red Sox didn't start this week as I'm sure they would have liked to, going 1-3 in the first four, but a three game winning streak and all is forgotten in a 4-3 week. For the first time of the season, Dustin Pedroia (right) is Player of the Week after going .393/2/9 this week-- he is now .319/5/18 as he is having a phenomenal season as usual. The Pitcher of the Week for his second time of the year is Felix Doubront-- who went 2-0/3.65/7 in 14.1 innings this week. Doubront pitched well (especially last night) and is now an impressive 3-1/4.46/37 on the season. The Performance of the Week goes to Will Middlebrooks, who played a great game on Monday in Kansas City. Middlebrooks went 3-5 with a pair of home runs and five RBIs in that game as the rookie is really impressing. The Game of the Week goes to last night as the Sox played a really clean, good game (it doesn't hurt that I was at Fenway!) in all facets and beat the Indians 4-1. In the upcoming week, the Sox will challenge their three-game win streak against the Mariners for two. After that, they will play two in Tampa Bay and three in Philadelphia to wrap up their week.
