Red Sox Face Major Weekend Test In Arlington

No, No. Not That One!
No, not that Arlington—Arlington, Texas. When we all wake up Monday morning, we will probably know a lot more about the legitimacy of the 2013 Carmine Hose. The Red Sox will face three pretty tough Ranger starters—Derek Holland (3.38 ERA) on Friday; Alexi Ogando (3.38 ERA) on Saturday; and Yu Darvish (2.33 ERA) on Sunday. We will send out Felix Doubront, John Lackey and Jon Lester. And, while Texas suffered big departures from their 2012 offense (Josh Hamilton, Mike Napoli, Michael Young), they sit atop the American League West with just three fewer wins than Boston. Hopefully, the MLB's leading road record (9-3) will hold up for the Red Sox.
