Red Sox Finally Live Up to Hyping
11-8

The Red Sox are finally starting to take off. Their young stars kicked off the rust and provided their rotation with the offense needed to win 4 out of 6 contests this week. This is excellent, as their rotation is still trying to figure things out. While Steven Wright achieved his first win of the season, Porcello was saddled with a loss. They could definitely use the help of Co-Ace David Price, who is still progressing.

The biggest issue the Red Sox had was during an emotional weekend series against the Orioles. After a rough slide on Friday night injured captain Dustin Pedroia, it appears they attempted revenge. Matt Barnes was ejected Sunday after a pitch flew just behind Machado’s head. This has created a frenzy in the media from all sides. The biggest issue for the Sox though will be how long they may lose Pedroia for.

Final Takeaway:

The Red Sox are finally starting to take the shape the reporters foretold this winter. They’ll get an excellent chance to gain ground on the Orioles against the Yankees to start the week.
