Remember when the Red Sox were 3 games under .500?
They had dropped 2 in Toronto and were heading to New York. They looked rudderless.
7 games later the Red Sox have 7 more wins and right now are the third best team in the American League and tied in the loss column with the first place Tampa Bay Rays.
And tonight was an old fashioned ass whuppin’. Even a subpar Lester performance couldn’t damper the Sox spirits.
If the Sox win tomorrow and get a little help from the Marlins and Mets, they could be in first place by the end of tomorrow.
