Sox Mid-Season Review

This article is more than 12 years old.

Tonight's Major League Baseball All-Star game in San Francisco will feature six Boston Red Sox players: Josh Beckett, David Ortiz, Manny Ramirez, Mike Lowell, Jonathan Papelbon, and Hideki Okajima.

For the third consecutive year, the All-Star break sees Boston in first place in the American League East, with a 10-game lead over the Yankees and the Blue Jays. It's a fine time to take stock of the Sox' performance so far and look to what may lie ahead.

WBUR's Bob Oakes considers the team's mid-season report card with analyst Glenn Stout, author of, among other books, "Red Sox Century" and "Yankees Century."

This program aired on July 10, 2007. The audio for this program is not available.
