Showing that they can do more than just beat the Tampa Bays of the world, the Sox took two out of three from the Mariners at home after losing two out of three last weekend in Seattle. The Mariners were on fire, but no longer.
The Red Sox are now 23-7 against teams with losing records and 6-4 against winning teams. They now begin a three-game series against the evil, evil, 24-20 White Sox here in Chicago. This is another test for them. The Yankees, having won 10 of their last 12, are hot on their trails, only two games back. I don’t know how long Boston can hold them off. Giambi isn’t even getting booed anymore.
