Red Sox in huge trouble

The Tampa Bay Rays are making a mockery of the American League Championship Series, taking a 3-1 lead after blowing out the Boston Red Sox in Game 4, 13-4. In winning three straight games, the Rays have scored an astonishing 31 runs against Boston pitching that was said to be playoff tested.

The Sox came back from a 3-1 deficit a year ago to Cleveland, but they had the bats of Mike Lowell (now hurt) and Manny Ramirez (traded). The Rays look like a young team with no fear, while the Sox look befuddled.
