BOSTON (WBZ-AM) -- The Red Sox are 5-and-2 on their road trip. The final stop is Minnesota, where Boston will open a three-game series tonight at 8:10 p.m. Chris Sale will take the mound opposite Jose Berrios. At 49-and-24, it's hard to find much to complain or even worry about for the first-place Sox.
Do Xander Bogaerts or Mitch Moreland have any concerns?
"I don't think I have any," Bogaerts said. "Our team is doing a great job, we have one of the best records in the game, so as of now, I don't think we have any concerns."
"We're good in every spot," Moreland said. "We throw the ball well, we've hit well. We're leading the majors in wins, so I think we're doing something right!"
Alex Cora Thriving In First Year As Red Sox Manager
And what does manager Alex Cora think about his group?
"The guys have bought into what we're preaching," Cora said. "They're doing a good job on a daily basis preparing themselves, showing up, and having fun. That's the most important thing--they appreciate every win. Something I told them--to win at this level, you know, one game at the big-league level is hard, imagine 49, 50, whatever it is. Honestly, I'm not concerned. I want to see what happens the rest of the season, because I feel there is margin to improve. We can improve in certain areas, and if we do that, we're going to be a better team."
