I'm not going to root for the Sox to lose. So, this 6 game winning streak has been a breath of fresh air after months of lousy play.
But, that being said, this team isn't going anywhere and I wouldn't mind a shot at a higher draft pick. I believe that would come with higher money allotted for the international draft too.
Hey, if the Sox win enough games to get the 11th pick, then at least some can keep the excuse alive that the Sox farm system is bad because we almost never have top 10 picks.

But, after that we get the Astros. I'm not under any illusion that this Sox team is only 1 or 2 pieces away from contending, but with this starting pitching, they really shouldn't have been making a run at the 1970 team's loss total. One nice thing is that they were able to plug in Rienzo into the rotation after trading Peavy. So, it wasn't just us trading our veterans and fielding total scrubs after they were gone.
