On a roll

In case you haven't noticed (and judging by the site stats you haven't...) the Red Sox recorded one or two emphatic wins this week.

Beating up the Cincinnati Reds may not be as sexy as beating the Angels or the White Sox or even the Yankees, but they're not playing for psychological advantages right now - a win is a win is a win. The pitching looked good and the bats were chock-full of hits, and I'm hoping that the Sox can carry that through to the 3-game series against Pittsburgh. It would be good to stay on a roll against the 30-34 Pirates, because after this weekend the Sox will face a tough 3-week stretch against the Indians, Phillies, Indians (again), Blue Jays, Rangers and Orioles - not a losing record in sight.
