Win or go home, Red Sox.
The Red Sox start a big three-game series against the Rays tonight. The Red Sox really need to win at least two, preferably three if they want to have any chance of staying in the race.
Those being (primarily) the words of (presumably) Randy Booth. All I (Ben) have to say is "blargh".
Rays. Red Sox. The Trop. And to start it off, a pair of aces in Jon Lester and David Price.
|2010 - Jon Lester||13-8||25||25||2||0||0||0||163.0||135||64||59||12||58||166||3.26||1.18|
