Red Sox Locked In
The Boston Red Sox are starting to look like the real deal. Chris Sale helped lead the charge against his former club the White Sox for a series win. They then battled with a recently resurgent Orioles team in route to a series split. This leaves the Red Sox 2 games outside of first, and in the lead for the top Wild Card spot overall.
The Red Sox offense has been as good as ever, helping bail out the bullpen and the rotation out of some tight jams. The Red Sox will get a chance to continue their successes against the Yankees and the Detroit Tigers this week.
Boston’s rotation got a huge boost with the return of David Price. The rotation now boasts, Sale, Price, and a Resurgent Drew Pomeranz at the top of the order. Rick Porcello is still looking to find the magic that landed him CY Young last year. Eduardo Rodriguez had been looking better, but the has landed on the DL.
Boston’s squad will be even more complete with team Captain Dustin Pedroia close to returning from injury. With a full squad and a dominant rotation front end, the Red Sox could quickly become the best team in the league.
The Red Sox are quickly earning the praise from the off season. All of Baseball can finally watch the tandem of Price and Sale and weep if they hit a series with the top of the rotation.
