BOSTON (CBS) – At this moment of midsummer pause in the baseball season, we Sox fans pause as well, to contemplate the All-Star Home Run Derby and ask the age-old question: what am I going to do with myself for the next three nights?
But somehow, this summer, the seemingly endless All-Star break doesn’t seem quite so onerous, because the Sox are terrific and last year is almost forgotten.
On this date last year, the Sox won their 46th game, moving two games over .500. They would go on to lose 49 of their last 72 games, including 12 of their final 13 in a spectacular season-ending swan dive.
