That's nine in a row

Boston completed the sweep of the Blue Jays with today's 14-1 win to give them nine victories in a row, the longest winning streak in the majors.

The guys are smokin' at the plate, outscoring Toronto 35-6 in the series. Jon Lester got his league leading ninth win as well. A-Gon is batting over .400 for the last month and abusing the stat leader board with hits, rbi's, and runs. Papi has a year's worth of homers and rbi's in the last month as well.

It took a while for these guys to get out of the gate, but they got it in top gear now.

They come to St. Pete this week to play three with the Rays. I think Wake's got the nod in the first game. His knuckler dances pretty nice in the a/c, but the guys here are used to seeing him, so anything can happen. Madden's juggled his rotation to get the pitching match-ups he wants, so it's going to be a fun series.

I hate to root against the local team, but with Boston in front, I'd like to see them put some distance between them and the Yankees.
