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!"
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."
