McAdam says on The Baseball Show [Sunday night] that members of the organization say anything less than 5-2 against CWS & HOU and the Sox go into sell mode
I'm not sure why a good performance over the next seven games would convince the front office that this is a team with a shot at even the second wild card. The organization can't be that dumb or short-sighted about something that has roughly a 4% chance of happening. (And I'd say 3-4 is a far sounder bet than 5-2.) Every decision the Red Sox make this summer should be made with an eye toward 2015 and beyond.

I'd say 3-4 sounds about right.

So confused as to why Betts is up but riding the pine.
