The Red Sox are four games behind the Yankees in the AL East Division standings as of this morning, and three games behind the A's for the AL Wild Card. The BoSox recently fired manager Jimy Williams and replaced him with Joe Kerrigan. Their best pitcher and best pitcher in the league, Pedro Martinez, had been on the disabled list since July 27. Their two best everyday players are Manny Ramirez and Nomar Garciaparra, but Nomar has played only 17 games this season due to injury, and Ramirez is out of the lineup right now may go on the disabled list soon due to a strained right hamstring. The placement of the Red Sox cap on the summit of Everest may be having the opposite effect to its original intent.
