Red Sox Must Improve Against AL East Opponents — Fast
" BOSTON (CBS) — The Red Sox have not been short on story lines through the first three months of the season. Some have lasted longer than others, but one that’s yet to disappear has been the team’s inability to climb all the way out of .500-ville, a place at which they’ve spent most of the season.

After Monday’s loss to the Blue Jays, they’re now 38-35 overall. That knocked them off their best record of the season, when they were four games above .500 for the first time all season after taking two of three from the Braves over the weekend. Now, they are once again in last place of the American League East.

It’s an appropriate place for the Sox to be, considering how much trouble they’ve had with AL East opponents this year. In fact, those struggles more than anything are the reason the Red Sox are where they are in the standings.

Monday’s loss dropped their record against the Blue Jays on the season to 3-4. Against the Baltimore Orioles, the Sox are 3-6. Against the first-place Yankees, they’re 0-2. Against the Rays, they’re 5-4 "
