Red Sox feeling good about things
Having taken two of three from the Phillies and won five of their last six overall, the Red Sox are feeling good about themselves coming into the three-game series with the Rays at the Trop.
Here is a look at the series from Boston.com's Tony Massarotti, who says the Sox are coming in "with their confidence at a season high," and from mlb.com's Spencer Fordin.
But they also acknowledge how well the Rays are doing. "I think coming into this year it looked like they expected to be good,'' manager Terry Francona said. "We saw enough of them this spring, I remember thinking they’re going to be good. They’re athletic, they catch the ball, they have different options.’’
The Sox were happy to get Jacoby Ellsbury back in their lineup over the weekend, and according to the Boston Globe there's a chance OF Mike Cameron could be rejoin them at the Trop.
