Cubbie Hole

Hey, forget this once every 93 years thing! Let's re-align the Cubbies into the AL East!

The Red Sox hit on all cylinders Friday (with the exception of starting pitching) and smoked the tiny bears, 15-5 at Fenway. Adrian Gonzalez was 4-6 with 4 RBI, while Youk collected 2 doubles and a two-run HR. Jon Lester was the one forgettable element in the tilt, giving up 11 hits and 5 runs—and not having one single clean inning. This was not a blowout until late, as Chicago took advantage of Lester's inconsistency to storm back to within 3 (8-5).

Bottom line? The Sox, who started 2-10 have now gone 22-10 and sit just a half-game out of first place.
