The Red Sox enter their biggest six-game stretch of the season thus far, opening a pair of games against the Tampa Bay Rays, and then moving on to a four-game series in the Bronx.
There will likely be a lot of talk about what the Sox need to do or what will constitute success over the next week.
My simple definition: come out no worse than when they went in.
That means winning one game in Tampa and two in New York. Put another way, it means winning when Josh Beckett and Jon Lester are on the mound. Anything else is gravy.
