    Pablo Sandoval could be back at Fenway Park as soon as the end of the week.

    Sandoval made his third appearances in a rehab game for Pawtucket and went 0-for-3 while playing seven innings at third base. Hes 1-for-9 in three games.

    As we said when he went out on the rehab, hes going to need some repetition, Farrell said. Hes going to need innings on the field to get his legs back under him and get back in game shape.

    Farrell said its possible that Sandoval could be activated from the disabled list during this homestand.

    If the Red Sox swept they would be 1 game out of first place... it looks like the Yankees and Orioles aren't all that great. Win a few series and they'll be in first place... still have them winning the division, especially once everyone come back.

    For all the criticism that you've thrown at those who are questioning the Sox credentials this season, is it fair to say that this sounds very Polyannaish? "If the Red Sox swept" is a ridiculous premise when all they managed to do was AVOID a sweep with a big offensive display on Sunday. They dropped three in a row to the team that was in last place in the AL West when the two teams squared off for the series on Thursday. Objectively, anything less that 3 wins against a last place team should be considered a failure.

    I could understand the blind optimism before Thursday's game; the come-from-behind win looked like a turning point for the season. When yet-another-dept-starter gets lit up, the Sox offense fails to carry another double-digit strikeout performance from Sale, and Pomeranz pitches like the guy who had to beg for a chance as a SP because so many attempts produced less-than-league-average results... it doesn't sound like the time to say everything is great.

    It's obviously heartening that their AL rivals are coming back down to earth. The Sox are within striking distance of both the top of the AL East and the Wild Card (though it's worthing noting that another week of .500 ball has taken them out of the top spot in the WC and now sit in fifth, 1.5 GB).

    This team has flaws and has not yet found a way to take hold of their own destiny. Their 4/5 starters have been embarrassing and the offense has yet to find a groove when their top starters take the mound. They remain a good -- maybe great -- team ON PAPER, but not yet a good team on the field. I hope they find a way to light a fire under some guys and find a doc for the others.

    They'll win the division... by 3.5 games.

    Do you have any response to the flaws that seem so glaring right now?

    Pitching - Sale, Porcello, Price, E-Rod, (insert anyone here). I'll take that rotation 6 day out the week and twice on Sunday.

    Hitting - they need to wake tf up.
