Fifth time's the charm?
The Sox are after a winning record...again...having failed in their first four attempts. Now they'll have to take out their division rivals in the Rays to get there, which is something they've actually been entirely capable of doing so far this season.
Unfortunately, the attempt will come without Will Middlebrooks, which makes me sad and should do the same for all of you. Because nothing brightens up a day like a strong Will Middlebrooks at-bat.
