Feels pretty nice, right? Yep, just lean back and enjoy this one for a few days longer. It’s not every year we get to enjoy a series sweep in the Bronx, so when the Red Sox completed the feat in dramatic fashion on Sunday Night Baseball I soaked it all in.

It doesn’t matter to me if the Yankees have the best record in baseball or the worst, beating them in the Bronx always feels special. I have always said that they did the rest of the baseball world a favor by moving from “The House that Ruth Built” to their swanky, soul-less new digs. The new place is bland and without mystique, sorry, no one is afraid to play there. What makes this extra sweet is how universally expected the Yankees were to run away with the division. Seeing them flounder warms my heart.

On this episode of the show we spend some time talking about where the Red Sox sit in the divisional stretch and what this run of 17 games in a row means for the team as buyers or sellers. We touch on the health of Chris Sale, the tremendous performance by the bullpen so far in June, and the ever-present leadoff question. We also try and do our best at diagnosing the most pressing needs should the Red Sox become buyers.

Lastly, we answered a bunch of your listener questions before ending the show.
