Bad news first:
1) The Sox have been a .500 team since May 27.
2) But, thanks to April/May, even if they continue at .500 the rest of the season the Yankees or Blue Jays need to win at a .620 clip to catch up.
So, while it'd be nice to see the Sox, you know, win for a while, it's nowhere near panic time. It should be an interesting second half. You have to assume some players will cool off (Lowell, Youkilis, the red-hot Julio Lugo), but if Manny and Ortiz actually start hitting like Manny and Ortiz, the Red Sox (not to mention my poor fantasy team) should be in pretty good shape.
