AL East Standing: 1st Current Record: 60-40 Weekly Record: 2-1 (Every Sunday I will attempt to give some brief thoughts on the past week for the Boston Red Sox. It will be filled with hopes, frustrations, exhilaration, pain and puns. Lots of puns.)   “Bug” Is An Understatement: Well, crap. Andrew Bailey was the latest Red Sox reliever to fall, the team announcing that he will undergo season-ending surgery to repair a torn capsule and damaged labrum in his right shoulder. He’ll be knocked out for at least the next 12 months, and all of a sudden that $4.1 million salary is looking mighty heavy. The worst part of all of this is that Bailey was starting to turn it around, having thrown four consecutive scoreless appearances leading up to the All-Star Break. His injury also leaves the Red Sox bullpen another man short. Matt Thornton finally had a good outing on Sunday night, Pedro Beato and Drake Britton are nice surprises, and Craig Breslow, Junichi Tazawa, and Koji Uehara are still de...

Sox Get 'Lester-Iffic' Performance, Beat Rays, 6-2

(Jim Rogash/Getty Images)This was the Jon Lester we knew and loved at the start of the 2013 season. Throwing strikes, showing command, lasting into the seventh inning. Lester went 6 1/3 innings, giving up just two runs, striking out eight and—significantly—walking nobody in a 6-2 win by the Carmine Hose. A mixture of good and bad baserunning characterized the Boston offense....

Jon Lester sparkles in 6-2 win over Rays

As they head into August in a battle for the American League East, pitching is their biggest question mark.
