The Red Sox are 7 games out.
They have three outfielders who are more than solid defensively and another who can be one of the better hitters in the game.
The starting pitching is coming through with solid performances. The infield is making solid contributions offensively and defensively.
The team has begun what will be a historic winning streak to gain ground on all teams ahead of them.
When Dustin Pedroia returns around September 10th, the Red Sox will be in the hunt for the second Wild Card spot.
Dave Dombrowski (and Ben Cherrington) may have some work to do – improve the bullpen.
Full speed ahead.
