Shea-USA TODAY Sports The Boston Red Sox are one game behind the first place New York Yankees in the American League standings .

You canít win the division with two sub-200 hitters in your lineup. JBJ might have a couple of plays per game, but he has four or five at bats.

Imo and as a Sox diehard since 1952 at age 8, if the Sox don't get some respectable production out of the last third of lineup, at best they are destined second to the Yankees.
At the moment and in a general sense, I liken the Sox to an early speed horse in a horse race, meaning without addressing the needs as cited above as well as shoring up the setup guys in the bp, the Yankee "horse" with whom they are currently competing for the top spot is going to gradually pull away and win the division by 8-10 games.
In short and to summarize, it is unrealistic for a handful of everyday players and pitchers to be avle to carry the load for 162 games without other players participating with some consistency.
