Say goodbye to the days of gaining ground. The Sox are back to just trying to stay afloat.

Today is one of those games that means more than it will show in the standings. Three straight losses, back down to .500, 0-5 against the Orioles at home, and with Clay Buchholz on the mound.

If they win, they might be back on track.

If they lose, it means back under .500. It means the Orioles remain the owners of Fenway. It likely means Clay Buchholz is back to his bad ways. Honestly, though, I might trade away the first two if it meant a good game for Buchholz.
