The Red Sox Are BACK (For Now)

We’ve all been wondering when the Red Sox will wake up and actually play good baseball again. Well, they’re starting to do so now. I wrote an article the other day mentioning how it seemed like they were going backwards. But now, I have to say it, the Red Sox are BACK (for the time being) and better than ever.

They came away with another win over the Chicago White Sox in the series finale yesterday, taking 3 of 4.

It just seems like there are so many signs pointing toward the Red Sox being back to where they were in 2018.

They Have Been Playing Better As Of Late

The Red Sox have picked it up lately. Since the Yankees series, the Red Sox have gone 11-5 in their last 16 games, including 2 sweeps of the Rays and Athletics. They could have had another sweep had it not been for a 9th inning collapse on Thursday night. But hey, can’t win them all! The bottom line is that the Red Sox have been playing more consistent baseball, which is exactly what we as fans have been looking for since the season started.

Michael Chavis Continues To Produce

Chavis is hitting .333 and also putting up numbers like the ones listed above. He has been the spark that the Red Sox needed to get over their beginning of the season. Sure, there might have been concerns about how he would handle the fielding aspect of 2nd base. For anybody that still has doubts, take a look at this clip.

He will only continue to get better in the field and his offensive production will only continue to shine.

The Starting Pitching Has Turned The Corner

The Red Sox starters are giving their lineup a chance to win games. Early on, we saw a lot of horrible pitch execution and short outings. Now, we’re starting to see the consistency show. Imagine if this can continue on? Then, we’ll really have something to talk about!

In Conclusion

Things are looking bright for the Boston Red Sox. They have a 4 game series starting tonight at Camden Yards with the Orioles. They then have an 8 game home stand which will feature the Mariners, Rockies, and Astros. If they can take 3 of 4 from Baltimore, 2 of 3 from Seattle, take both against Colorado and 2 of 3 from Houston; then you can talk about getting back into the A.L. East race as well. I know the Bruins and Celtics are on tonight. But if you can throw on the Red Sox game tonight for a second, I can assure you will not be disappointed this time.
