I wasn’t able to do my first week ahead yesterday, but today I’ll get it done.
Sunday: Loss at Blue Jays 5-1. L:Bard W:Hutchison
Monday: MLB Draft first round. Red Sox have picks 24 and 31 in the first round.
Tuesday: Orioles at Red Sox. Hammel (6-2 3.06 ERA) vs. Lester (3-4 4.79 ERA) A chance for Lester to bounce back and the Sox can close in on a struggling O’s team.
Wednesday: Orioles at Red Sox. Chen (4-2 3.75 ERA) vs. Beckett (4-5 4.26 ERA) Another chance to close in.
Thursday: Orioles at Red Sox. Matsuz (5-5 4.41 ERA) vs. Buchholz (5-2 6.58 ERA) Same as the other two games, trying to move up in the division.
Friday: Nationals at Red Sox. Starters TBD. Second interleauge series of the year; chance to make a statement against a young up and coming team.
Saturday: Nationals at Red Sox. Starters TBD. Another statement game.
This week is a good chance to move into the top 3 in the division. Prediction 3-3 record for the week.
