The Red Sox's three-game lead in the East is their largest since July 13. Their biggest lead of the season was 5.5 games, after the games of July 5.

Despite a superb 3.21 ERA (11th in the AL), Lackey has a 7-9 record. The Red Sox are scoring a paltry 3.3 runs per 27 outs for him.

Stephen Drew has a ten-game hitting streak (17-for-41, .415, with an 1.120 OPS).

In New York, where the Yankees are 11 GB, Alex Rodriguez had yesterday off.

In Yankee news, Mariano Rivera blew another save opportunity today - his third in a row!

I think I read that was the first time ever. The shitty thing was they won 2 of those games.

Check out this early video of A-Roid, Griffey Jr and Big Papi - while the 2 were rookie Mariners, and Ortiz was in the low minors!
