The Red Sox have had a rough season. Loaded with talent they got off to a decent start but the lack of solid pitching, personnel changes and injuries have taken a toll on them and have made it difficult to string together enough wins to post at least a .500 record. With about 10 games to play they have returned to their winning ways in the month of September but face a deficit from frequent summer losses that looks to be insurmountable.
Some players like Ortiz, and Bogaerts who hit his first Major League grand sllam this past week have been bright spots in an otherwise turbulent, albeit up and down season.
The Red Sox are looking to rebound against the surging Baltimore Orioles who make the trip to Fenway to face some Rookie pitchers and then Henry Owens on Sunday. Wren has now joined Dombrowski’s team as they look to re-build and re-structure a winning roster for next season. Let’s hope they turn things around sometime soon.
