Despite the loss in Game 4 there is no way to look at this series and not be pleased. The Sox beat the snot out of the Rays twice and split two close games. It doesn’t get much better.
And now we have the Rangers, another potential Wild Card rival. Lester pitches against Colby Lewis and Beckett pitches against Derek Holland. The Sox should be favorites in both games. Win them both and the Sox are at .500 after twelve games. I don’t have to tell you that’s four games ahead of 2011.
