The Sox are headed to the playoffs and broke the 100 Win mark- needless to say, these are awesome times for sox fans.
Red Sox Nation has every reason to be super excited as the team surpassed the 100 win level on Wednesday September 12th and this after David Price pitched a gem of a 1-0 victory/
The Red Sox are riding high after securing yet another playoff appearance for the 2018 season…..Rookie manager Alex Cora’s first managerial triumph/
They appropriately clinched the playoff berth on Tuesday September 11, 2018 at home and after moving pre-game ceremonies commemorating the tragedy and the subsequent heroic activities that ensued.
Boston also remembers what it’s like to be hit with a terror attack and much of the response was the 2013 Championship drive; nobody can forget that year and the message was sent loud and clear… Don’t Mess With Boston!
These record setting 2018 Red Sox are looking to create new and fresher Red Sox memories as they propel towards another AL East Crown. They have 9 more games against New York teams…it will be the Yankees and the Mets that will likely decide who gets the Pennant but at least we know when it comes to the all important playoff season we are already in!
Remarkably, few teams can pass the 100 win mark and the last time it happened for the Red Sox the year was 1946 and Ted Williams played in the outfield. Sadly the Red Sox did not go on to win the Championship that year in a heartbreaking last minute loss to the St.Louis Cardinals. However, this years team finds themselves not only unstoppable but also on pace to win 112 games.
Lots of baseball is left to be played and this impressive 2018 Red Sox squad will need plenty of fan support. With awesome players to watch like Mookie Betts, J.D. Martinez, Xander Bogaerts, Brock Holt, Chris Sale, David Price, Craig Kimbrel, and company, it also is going to be a ton of fun.
