That's right, the Sox are first. If you are aiming for fourth, that is.
Tonight the Sox can add another half game to their lead on the Rays (losers to Seattle), and keep pace with the Rangers (winners over Anaheim). Really, who cares about the hosts – they're a lock, a smoothly sailing ship, healthy, wealthy, and wise, and now their goal will just be to stay injury-free. Tune them out Sox fans, if you can, and just check the DL every few days with fingers crossed.*
* We kid. We wish no injuries on anyone. Club-wide stomach flu, maybe. But not injuries.
