All it took was a weekend! The Red Sox moved from the bottom of the pack to third in the AL East. They are now 10 – 11 which is half a game behind .500!
If you were worried at the beginning of the season, no need to be worried now. In the past 10 games, only two teams in the MLB have 8 or more wins… the Boston Red Sox (5 straight wins) and the Florida Marlins (1 straight win), making Boston the hottest team in the MLB despite their slow start. Finally winning away games was something that plagued the team and the road record is now 5 – 7.
The next series for Boston is Tuesday 4/26/11 against the Baltimore Orioles who are now in last place with a record of 8-12.
Jed Lowrie earned a spot in the lineup after starting the season with 22 hits in 51 at bats (.431 average).
Go Sox, keep up the good work!
I know, I know… we’re only 4 games into the season. But, who would have thought that Baltimore and Toronto would be tied for first and Tampa Bay and Boston would be tied for last?
So the Sox need a win, big time! I haven’t really gotten into the Sox a whole lot yet (following but not watching) and it’s NOT because I am a fare-weather fan… it’s because I still have up to 18 inches of snow in parts of my yard and until it reaches 60 degrees, Forecast says Saturday and Sunday (fingers crossed), then it still seems like hockey season.
But when I do settle in and get my baseball on, I will be all serious about it! It usually takes a few weeks for me anyway because I am so wrapped up in hockey and basketball. I am hoping the Bruins do real well this post season. I would take a Bruins championship over a Celtics championship this year, easy! It’s not likely that the Dallas Stars are going to make the playoffs but that would be a great Stanley Cup match up…. Bruins vs Stars! The fighting, bad blood, emotion and so on would be one of the best matchups to see!
Come on Sox, win a couple and at least get to .500 by the end of next week! The Yankees are coming to town tomorrow and it would be a great way to resurrect the beginning of the season to take 2 or 3!
