Now Boston’s Season Begins
The Red Sox own the best record in the Majors, have the hottest pitcher (Buchholz) and the leader in RBIs and extra base hits (Napoli).
But they’ve also been playing terrible teams. Almost all of the Sox’s opponents have either been woeful in general (Rays, Blue Jays, Astros) or in a slump when the Sox met them (Yankees, As). Tomorrow Boston starts a series against the Rangers, a first place team well above .500. It will be their first true test of 2013.
