They've jettisoned Thome and Contreras and are playing out the string. These are the GIMME GAMES for the Red Sox!
So now they have to be perfect just to walk away with a split in US Cellular Field while being outscored 17-3.
Now granted the Red Sox shaved another game off of the magic number thanks to the Rangers loss... so it's now down to 26.
And the schedule is filled with lots of games with the Royals, Indians and Orioles... so there should be some gimme games in there.
But I thought the White Sox were gimme games.
Lester is pitching today. In other words the only pitcher the Red Sox can really count on is on the bump.
