Well, everything is even again with 16 games left. But while the Sox have a much harder schedule, there are a few bright spots:
1. The Sox do not face Pedro this weekend.
2. The Sox will most likely miss Johan next week unless Gardenhire decides to hold him back for the Sox series.
3. The Sox have Monday off, so they will not need to pitch Wright against Minnesota.
4. Minnesota is only 5-8 against Cleveland this year.
So while the Sox blew a big opportunity today, there is still a lot of baseball yet to be played.
