Coming Up : A Tough Part Of The Boston Red Sox 2010 Schedule

OK, a tough part of the Boston Red Sox 2010 schedule is upon us. They will play three games in Detroit, two with the Yankees in NYC and then come to Fenway for two quickies with the Minnesota Twins. After that are two three game road series with the always tough Phillies and the Tampa Bay Rays. We will be able to gauge just how good this Red Sox team is after those games. Every one of those teams are currently in first or second place in their respective divisions. Here's Tim Wakefield on the upcoming schedule...

“It’s going to be a tough one,’’ Tim Wakefield said. “We’ve got our work cut out for us. But I believe in everybody in the clubhouse downstairs and look forward to keeping the momentum going.’’

And Jon Lester had this to say...

“This is a big trip for us coming up. We played well on the homestand outside of those two games against the Yankees. It just feels like we’re playing better baseball and the record also proves it. We’re pitching better, hitting better, everything has been improved."

I agree with our talented lefty ace. Tonight, Tito Francona will hand the ball to Clay Buchholz in the Motor City. May the force be with them just as it was with the Boston Celtics last night. WOW!!! They humbled the LeBron James-led Cleveland Cavaliers and will advance to play the Orlando Magic. LeBron? He's moving on to free agency and ten tons of money. Maybe more. Probably more.

Have a great Friday and a terrific weekend. You can click on this post's title to zip over to the Boston Globe's Red Sox homepage. It features a great article about Jonathon Papelbon along with much more. As always, BE WELL. See ya. GO SOX.
