The Boston Red Sox seem like a completely different baseball team than they were a year ago. Heading into the All-Star break, the Sox have 58 wins and have completed one of the best starts to a season in franchise history.
A lot of things have changed for the Red Sox. John Farrell has replaced Bobby Valentine as the manager, and Josh Beckett was dealt to the Los Angeles Dodgers along with Carl Crawford and Adrian Gonzalez. On Sports Sunday, Ron Borges and Michael Felger discussed what has been the biggest reason for the Red Sox' turnaround and agreed that the team has shown a better attitude since the trade with the Dodgers last year.
"The Red Sox have always been good," Felger said. "But something had infected that team. You could just see it."
"I just think they lopped off the issues in the clubhouse."
Coming out of the break, the Red Sox have a weekend home series with the New York Yankees.
