Red Sox Free-Fall To .500; Lose to Empire, 7-3

Joe Girardi is proud of his team. You know why? A month ago, they were "only" six games over .500. Now, they hit the break at 19-games over and own the best record in baseball. New York has some of the same excuses as Boston—e.g., a slew of injuries and the fact that they stink with RISP. The difference is they didn't use the excuses, they just won. Your Carmine Hose reach the All-Star Break having lost seven of nine, having won as many as they've lost, and sit in last place in the American League East—thanks to a 7-3 loss on Sunday night. In fact, the Red Sox would give anything to be "just" six games over .500.
