Red Sox Having A Season to Remember

This Red Sox is season is not only super it is nothing short of Spectacular! The Red Sox just crossed over the 90 Win level; a  plateau that usually assures a playoff appearance with only 30+ games remaining.

Can you remember when a team pulled of this feat? Of course you can’t because it hasn’t happened before! read more

Sox Reach 80-Win Plateau and it’s Only Early August

Considering that baseball teams play a 162 game season (the longest schedule in sports), when a team crosses the 80 win plateau they essentially assure themselves of a successful season.

At the very least they have won half of their games and are guaranteed of finishing with a .500 winning percentage or better. read more

Betts is the Bet for MVP in 2018

We all knew Mookie Betts was good.  But did we know he was this good?

Through 48 games (not quite a third of the season), Betts is batting .359, with 17 HR, 37 RBI, and an earth shattering OPS of 1.187.

Extrapolate those numbers over a full season, and Mookie is on pace to put up a tremendous season–if he continues even close to this pace, he could be looking at a 50 HR, 120 RBI type season.  Oh, and we don’t even care if he participates in the home run derby. read more

Red Sox are Fantasy Gold Jerry…Gold

If you grew up watching Seinfeld, you might remember this one

gold-jerry-gold

And well, that’s what some key members of the Sox have been this year in Fantasy baseball lineups–GOLD.

As this article from Sports Illustrated notes:

Betts and Martinez are hitting a ridiculous .354/.417/.719 with 30 home runs. Both would have to be included on the short list of AL MVP candidates through the first two months of the season, along with Mike Trout, Aaron Judge and, of course, Ramirez and Lindor. It’s hard enough for pitchers to deal with one player like Betts or Martinez. When they have to see two, it’s nearly impossible to navigate the top half of a lineup. read more

As Spring Training Closes Out: Red Sox Bats Are Heating Up

Red Sox sluggers David Ortiz and Mike Napoli have seen limited action this spring due to nagging injuries. Manager John Farrell has been shuffling spring training lineups, experimenting to see who can step up and produce runs for the team in the 2015.  Ortiz and Napoli have been known to carry the team on their backs and were spectacular during the 2013 Championship drive.  However, given the struggles last season, the Red Sox will need some extra offensive punch to return to its past efficiency. read more
