Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here... highlighting the big storyline. Because there's nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. The Red Sox caught a break last night. They can cash in on it tonight. Last night’s rainout meant a lot more than the indignity of possibly sliding into second place in the AL East for the first time since May 25 with a loss to the Rays. Tampa Bay does remain a clear and constant threat for the 2013 season, but the Red Sox have a bigger problem on their hands for the next three days in Baltimore. And getting John Lackey to pitch the first game, with an extra day of rest, gives them a lift they definitely can use against an opponent that is even more formidable than the Rays. Every season, there is usually one AL East team that gives the Sox fits. This year, without question, the Orioles are that team. Herald: Rain a big gain for Sox The Red Sox did catch a break with the early rainout vs the Tampa Bay Rays last night. As we all know, both Matt Moore and David Price hurled complete game gems and the Red Sox offense is struggling mightily. They needed the breather before traveling to take on yet another division foe in the Orioles. With that being said, the Red Sox did not luck out with the makeup game and the Rays pitching rotation. The makeup game will be played this coming Monday and none other than, you guessed it, Price will take the mound for the Rays. So last night's rainout was both good and bad. If the Red Sox drop two of three or even get swept in Baltimore, Monday vs Price is the last thing this team needs.
