Tonight the D-Rays take the first step in what is sure to be a grueling 22-game span when they take the field against the first-place Boston Red Sox in Fenway Park. The Red Sox, may very well be the best team in baseball right now. With re-emergence of Curt Schilling, a healthy Josh Beckett and the discovery of Jonathon Papplebon in the bullpen, their pitching staff may be as good as ever. The offense is as solid as ever and ManRam, Manny Ramirez (.239-0-3) has not yet begun to hit. The good news for the D-Rays is they will miss Josh Beckett this series. Tampa Bay was 6-13 against the Red Sox in 2005 (1-9 @ Fenway), and are 0-14-3 in their last 17 series in Fenway.
