An old baseball adage says “Anything Can Happen in September”. The Red Sox are a team that has experienced the highs and lows of the dramatic September Pennant Races.
The Red Sox have steadily improved throughout this season spending many days in and out of first place. As our nation recovers from celebrating Labor Day weekend, the Sox find themselves tied with the Toronto Blue Jays for 1st place. With a respectable record of 77-61 and a high-octane powered offense, the Red Sox have a decent chance of capturing the AL East Pennant for 2016 or at least clinching the wild-card spot. In what could be David Ortiz’s last season anything short of the playoffs would be less than he deserves.
