The Red Sox took two out of three from the Reds this weekend. I hope this is a sign that they will bulldoze through the NL has they have in the past. If not for squandering another impressive outing from Justin Masterson (and his weird delivery) the Sox would've swept the Reds. Then again, they did overcome a blown save from Papelbon the following night. Sometimes you win when you're not supposed to and vice versa.
The Sox keep showing their depth as the offense continues to roll without Papi and without Manny on occasion. Undoubtedly, they will not be able to keep up this winning pace, but the more victories they can put in the bank now the better off they will be during the tough times.
Lastly, can we just pencil in Jacoby Ellsbury for two steals every night? Not only is he merciless on the base paths, he's a gold glove caliber outfielder, and in recent games, he's shown a bit of power. He's the AL version of Jose Reyes.
