It isn’t easy being A Red Sox fan. While we have had many high highs(3 Extremely Impressive World Series Victories) in the last 11 years there have also been some unexpected lows. This shouldn’t be looked at as a bad thing however…..instead look at the Red Sox team just keeping the fans on their toes. Whether wins or losses, homeruns or strikeouts in the rough that is Baseball…. that is more often than not….simply how it goes. Where will the Boston Red Sox be at the end of this Season??!! At this time it appears the answer to that question is your guess is as good as mine and nobody knows!
While all this makes for some exciting drama and some interesting articles …… 😉
I think at this point most Sox fans would rather see their beloved team return to it’s winning ways.A huge opportunity comes this weekend in their series against fellow AL East contender…. The Toronto Blue Jays.
Joe Kelly gets the ball Friday Night. With some fellow teammates recently getting sent to the minors this should be an opportunity to show Manager John Farrell(who is feeling the heat while facing some recent adversity) and the Big League ball club that he belongs with them.
pitching has been at times amazing but in reality remains a huge question mark depp into this season. Do the Red Sox have enough pitching for a successful season? If they are talented enough why aren’t they performing. This has many Sox fans scratching their heads and saying…. Why is it like this?….Does this underperformance have a reason?
Many fans would like to see the Sox obtain some well known lefties to fill the Gap that Lester filled and return the Red Sox to pitching dominance. Cole Hamels is one such Lefty who has popped up in trade talks. Luckily another Lefty Rodriguez who pitches this Sunday after righty Buchholz goes at it again this Saturday…. has been picking up wins while pitching consistently in his first few Rookie starts.
Hopefully the Red Sox can bounce back against the Blue Jays after being swept by the Orioles earlier this week. Even 2 out of 3 should be enough to put them back on the Road to Redemption. Go Sox.
