The Red Sox will try to avoid slipping under .500 for the first time this season while also trying to avoid a sweep at the hands of the Athletics. Lucky for them, they have Eduardo Rodriguez on the hill to make another start in what has been something close to a breakout season for them. This is as close to a must-win game as there is at this time of year. It has nothing to do with the standings, but everything to do with the feel around this team. They can't keep losing to bad teams and need a win to push them into their next series against one of the hottest teams in baseball in the Rangers. Come discuss this and anything else.
