Things Not Thought Possible One Week Ago

  1. Being on the brink of a winning record.
  2. A six-game winning streak.
  3. Daniel Bard having two wins, one in relief and another as a starter.
  4. Winning.
  5. Winning blowouts.
  6. Winning one-run games.
  7. Jon Lester winning a game.
  8. Ryan Sweeney the second-best hitter after David Ortiz (batting average .391, on-base percentage .412, slugging pecentage .594, and the hitter who scored the only run of the game).
  9. The bullpen only allowing one earned run in the past seven days (Scott Atchison on April 25 against the Twins).
  10. Alfredo Aceves pitching lights out.

Mark Twain memorably stated “one of the brightest gems in the New England weather is the dazzling uncertainty of it.” The same can be said for this year’s edition of the Red Sox.
