With last night's game, the Sox passed the magic game 40 mark. I don't recall this being magical in other seasons, but this year game 40 was often cited as the time when we'd know what the Sox had.

And we don't know nothin'.

In one sense, 19-21 is good news. We all would have taken it two weeks ago. They seem to be coming together. The games feel different; they feel better.

The bad news is that they probably need 95 wins to make it to the postseason, so their record has to be 76-46 from this point to get there.

And what's the team that has to do that? Daisuke's rehab start numbers are underwhelming. I guess we have to think he's tuning up and his numbers don't really count in that sense, but I'm neurotic, so I want to hear that he's blowing AAA hitters away.

What happens with Youkilis?

Does Bard keep his starter spot? Does Buchholz?

Cody Ross is on pace for 32 homers, something he's never done. David Ortiz is tied for the American League in doubles (15). David usually gets his share of doubles, but 60 would be a career high.

Josh Beckett stopped all the trade talk with his last start, but it will start back up tomorrow if he has a bad game today.  Cliff Lee starts for Philly, and he's looking for his first win, but his ERA is 1.95 and his WHIP is 0.757.

Game 41 today, and we don't know nothin'. Here's what I say: I'd like the record to be better, but I'm fine with not knowing. Pass the dog and the mustard, and play ball.
