The Red Sox aren't doing themselves any favours. Boston got shutout 4-0 by Texas and sit 1 game behind the Yankees in the AL East.

Justin Verlander was on the hill for Detroit on Monday night.
Naturally, he won his 19th game.
JV pitched 7 innings, allowed 3 hits, 1 run, 3 walks and chalked-up 8 Ks.
Verlander's career high is 19 wins(2009).
This season he will be a 20-something game winner, probably win the Cy Young and will be among the top candidates for American League MVP.
This cat only gets better!
Verlander and Alex Avila make a great battery. Avila has developed into a tremendous catcher. The guy calls a great game. He's got a cannon for a throwing arm. One thing that really stands out, if you watch the Tigers regularly, is how badly Avila gets beat-up every game. This dude is a magnet for foul-tips. He's gotta be covered in bruises! Despite the constant barrage of wayward baseballs, Avila cranked a 2-run homer last night - his 15th.
In August he is 25 for 59 (.424) with 5 homers and 14 RBIs.
