Trying to keep the Red Sox from completely falling apart is Alex Cora’s job right now and it is far from an easy one. (Rob Bradford; WEEI/Audacy)

If I can paraphrase Galadriel here, the season stands upon the edge of a knife. Stray but a little and the Red Sox will fail, to the ruin of all their playoff chances. (Sean McAdam; Boston Sports Journal)

Any hope of getting to the postseason will rely on a much more pragmatic approach to the last month of the campaign. (John Tomase; NBC Sports Boston)

Having Chris Sale in the starting rotation certainly makes things feel a bit less dire. (Evan Bleier; Inside Hook)

Jeter Downs is dealing with a small injury to his thumb. (Christopher Smith; MassLive)
