A few facts:
  • If Jason Giambi had taken the afternoon off, the Sox could have swept the Yankees at the Stadium. Giambi had all three RBI in the Bombers 3-2 win today. Still, I'm pretty happy with two out of three.
  • The Sox, who were a disaster on the road earlier this season, were 6-3 on this trip through Baltimore, Toronto and New York. Not bad!
  • The Rockies are only six games out in the NL West, as compared to 6.5 out on this date last year. Can they make another run and take a bad division?
  • The Diamondbacks lead the NL West at only three games over .500. If they were in the AL West, they would be 12.5 games behind the Angels.
  • The Sox play 20 of their last 29 at Fenway.
  • The Sox are 16-8 since the Manny trade. The Dodgers are 11-15, including losing their last seven in a row.
  • If Josh Beckett doesn't get good news on his arm from Dr. Andrews, the Sox are not going to repeat as World Series champions (OK, that's my opinion, but I think it's pretty darn close to being a fact.)
