I see Boston is back in the cellar

I've been battling this bronchitis that's knocking everyone off their feet these days.  My office sounds like one of those 1800's era TB wards we always read about.

While coming home from work and just crashing the last few weeks, I see the Red Sox have clawed their way back into the AL East cellar.  Losing 7 of their last 8 games, the guys have dropped to either 6 1/2 or 7 games behind the streaking Rays and Yankees.


Not sure what the problem is, but Clay Buccholz is on the mound tonight against the Marlins.  With the lack of offense these guy are generating, it looks like Clay's going to have to toss a shut out to get his team back in the win column.


And the Sox win 2-1 behind Buccholz's 7 innings of one run ball. Clay also struck out a season high 9 batters and finally looks to be rounding into form after a wretchedly slow start.
One run does not a streak make, but it's how they get started :-)
