Season summaryEdit

The Boston Red Sox finished 11 games behind the first place team in the American League East, the New York Yankees. While part of the blame for the Red Sox demise could be the 5 game sweep at the hands of the New York Yankees from August 18-August 21, the team had a poor record the entire month of August (going just 9-21) and September (13-14). Also, they suffered extensive injuries to Jason Varitek, Manny Ramirez, Jonathan Papelbon, Jon Lester, and Keith Foulke.
