David Ortiz hit HRs last Sunday with a career high 7 R.B.I’s in last Sunday’s Baseball Game. Of Course, the Red Sox won as their Future Hall of Famer Desdignated Hitter showed that he can still produce. Meanwhile, in Cooperstown legendary Red Sox Pitcher and fellow 2004 Champion gave a rousing final speech of the day as a new batch of players were inducted into Baseball’s Hall of Fame.
With several up and comers like Brock Holt, Mookie Betts, Blake Swihart, and Christian Vasquez…. one has to wonder if the Sox Farm System will make any Hall of Fame caliber players. Xander bogaerts is probably the best hope that area as he already has a 2013 championship under his belt, leads the team with a .317 avg. and continues to perform in the clutch …earning the name Mr. Walkoff.
Ortiz and Bogaerts have been carrying the Red Sox offense as Pedroia is sidelined due to injury. unfortunatley the pitching has been subpar and as today is the trading deadline, many expect and are indeed calling for some big moves to aid the Red sox in a pennat drive for the final 2 months….the most important for any team. Go Sox.
