Brock Holt has become a surprising valuable player during this winning streak. (Jen McCaffrey; Masslive.com)

The attitude around this team has changed in the last week or so. It's amazing what a winning streak can do. (Scott Barboza; ESPN Boston)

The Red Sox dug a pretty nice hole for themselves in the division in May, but there is still plenty of time to change that. (John Tomase; Boston Herald)

Garin Cecchini's stay in town was very short, but he was excited to be here while he had the chance. (Brian MacPherson; Providence Journal)

As Mookie Betts moves around the diamond, it's natural to wonder what kind of role he'll fill when he finally makes it to the bigs. (Harry Burnham; Fire Brand of the AL)

Chad Finn has some thoughts on the Red Sox in his weekly mailbag, including comparing Holt to a recent utility man from Boston's past. (Chad Finn; Boston.com)
