With 29 games to play for the Sox, 8 of them will be against the Orioles, the next 5 such match-ups at Fenway Park and then a season-closing series at Camden Yards. If the Red Sox are going to win the division, they’re going to have to do it against a team that has given them fits in the past couple of years…they handled them pretty well yesterday, though.
Today it’s former Astro Bud Norris against de facto staff ace John Lackey. Odds are favorable, but one never knows till the ballgame is over. Comment away.
