The Boston Red Sox have been one of the teams that experts are unsure of as the trade deadline approaches.

At The Break: The State Of Your Boston Red Sox

While they have won 10 of their last 15 games, it's hard to get too excited about the 2015 Carmine Hose. At the All-Star Break, they are still in last place in the turgid American League East.
