Second half begins
A 10-game lead entering the second half. All of you would have taken that right? I’m not sure what is more surprising. That the Red Sox have a 10-game lead or that they’ve done it with such little resistance from the other teams in the division.
Some key issues to wonder about down the stretch:
Will Ortiz and Manny start hitting like Ortiz and Manny?
Will Ortiz’s legs hold up or will he have to be shut down?
Will the Red Sox get a dominant Curt Schilling down the stretch?
Will Theo go out and get a top-line setup man?
Will Coco establish himself as the leadoff hitter?
Will Drew and Lugo finally start producing?
Will Beckett keep up his Cy Young pace?
Will Okajima fall off as hitters adjust to him?
What are some of your questions? Those are mine.
See you tonight from Fenway. Wakefield vs. Halladay. two of the fastest workers in baseball which probably means will have a five-hour game!
