When a team starts the season as well as the Red Sox did, falling back to .500 can be quite the blow to morale. A loss tonight would put them at 10-10 on the dot. Not a death knell this early in the season by any means, but...Well, it's something the 2013 Red Sox never had to deal with past 0-0.
(As I am typing this, it's barely over an hour until first pitch, and the Blue Jays still haven't released their lineup. So...y'all will have to make do)
