Just imagine the possibilities right now of where the Boston Red Sox could be if they were entirely healthy earlier in the season. And imagine what it could be like if Jon Lester and Josh Beckett pitched like they are capable of.
Yes right now the Red Sox are without David Ortiz and still haven't seen Andrew Bailey pitch yet this year but since the return of Jacoby Ellsbury and Carl Crawford from the disabled list, they have been playing like they were expected to. And that's win some baseball games.
The Chicago White Sox, aka the Youk's, came into Fenway Park as the first place team in the AL Central. And while they are still in first place, they leave Boston having lost three of four games.
Last night, the Red Sox barely could do anything against the South Siders starter Jose Quintana. They managed one hit through the first six innings, a Pedro Ciriaco triple. They barely even made Quintana work on the mound as he thrown just 68 pitches through six innings.
