Clay Buchholz Will Have His Hands Full Trying to Contain Potent Blue Jays Attack at Rogers CentreEditor's note: The temperature gauge is a Bill James-created statistic that measures how hot or cold hitters are. We will spotlight Red Sox and opposing team temperatures on game days.

The Red Sox have a chance to make a move up in the standings this weekend when they travel to Toronto for a three-game series against the Blue Jays.

Entering Friday's game, the Sox trail the Jays by just one game in the standings, and could win their way out of the cellar with a successful road trip. To do so, however, they'll have to deal with a potent Blue Jays lineup that always hits at home.

Here are the Red Sox' and Blue Jays' temperatures for June 1.
