Tom Jones' Two Cents

Sports analysis, perspective and more.

We've seen this before

Sox Everyone declared the Red Sox dead and buried back in April, so don't make the same mistake now after they were swept in a three-game series by the Rays. Boston's season is not over. It's limping, but it's not over. The Sox are ripped apart by injuries at the moment and are now 4 1/2 games behind the Yankees and 2 1/2 games behind the Rays. Click here to read today's game story from Wednesday night's 6-4 Rays' victory in the Boston Globe. Now the Red Sox head to Toronto for three games before a much-needed All-Star break. Oh, speaking of the Blue Jays. It is time to bury them. They've lost 12 of the past 16 and have fallen to 11 1/2 games behind the Yankees. Thanks for coming.
