Might the Red Sox make their move?

The Sox finish up their road trip (and a tough stretch of games) tomorrow. Here are the four series that follow:

Kansas City (3)
Oakland (3)
at Baltimore (3)
at Cleveland (4)

And the other AL East contenders:

White Sox (4)
at Toronto (3)
at Texas (3)
Toronto (3)

at Minnesota (3)
Cleveland (4)
Baltimore (3)
at Toronto (3)

Blue Jays
Baltimore (3)
Tampa Bay (3)
Yankees (3)
at Tampa Bay (3)

It’s not a huge advantage, but the Red Sox do have an easier slate. You can’t make up a deficit all at once. But if by the All-Star break the Sox are four games out in the division, they’ll be fine.

The 4-9 start was a tough hole. But they’re 21-12 since.
