These two game series are rare, but just after we take the quick trip to Chicago, the Phil's will be right back at home in Philadelphia to take on the Boston Red Sox, for a weekend series that always is popular with both Phillies and Red Sox fans.
In fact, both the Phillies and Red Sox are playing about the same, which really isn't too good, so that should put both teams on a somewhat even playing field coming into the weekend series.
Boston has it's problems, a new manager and a big payroll, and plenty of problems. Perhaps the Phillies can capitalize on this for the weekend series, and game some much needed wins.
For now though, our sites are set on the Cubbies, who are just coming off of a tough 7-6 loss to the Cardinals.
