BBTN: Are Sox contenders again?
Steve Berthiaume and Nomar Garciaparra of "Baseball Tonight" discuss whether it's safe to call the Red Sox contenders again with their improved play of late.
Garciaparra says the Sox are "always going to be contenders," and while they "still have some holes they need to fix" he says they've been successful in patching problem areas in the past.
