Guess what? It’s going to be all three, in row, over the next eight days.
The Sox welcome in the Twins on Wednesday night for a quick two-game series before traveling to Philadelphia to face the Phillies for a weekend set in the City of Brotherly Love. They then cap off the six-day road trip with a stop in Tampa Bay to face Major League Baseball’s best team, the 2008 AL champion Rays.
Each team currently leads its respective division, and heading into Wednesday’s action, the three powerhouse squads are a combined 36 games above .500. The Red Sox, meanwhile, are stuck at an even 20-20, trailing the first-place Rays by 8 1/2 games.
While the Sox have picked up their play lately with a pair of comeback performances in back-to-back nights in the Bronx, their upcoming schedule would make any team cringe. So pick your poison, Red Sox Nation, as Beth in Lowell has Wednesday’s NESN.com Question of the Day powered by KGB: Which of the next three opponents do you fear most?
