Prospects for 2019 Season

Well, here we are poised to begin another season of major league baseball and the Red Sox. Can they really repeat what they did last season or are we destined to see a team that falters and has a mediocre year, which is the norm for most teams coming off a world series win. I admit that last year I just quit writing about the team. They won so often that I couldn’t think of much to say, not to mention some personal things going on in my life that kept me from writing as well. I hope this season to be more regular with my posting and to get back to game to game analysis, which is what this blog started out to be.

New Season Coming Soon.

Well, the Red Sox set all kinds of historic records last season, as all fans surely know. They are now getting set to start 2019, but the prospects perhaps are not as good. As we all know, it is almost impossible to repeat two world series championships in a row, but it has been done. Do the Sox stand a chance of doing it again? Perhaps they do.

Indians @ Red Sox Game 4 (8-23-18)

The Red Sox continue to chug along with the best record in baseball by far. They just recorded their 90th win with 33 games left to go in the season. They are now 90-39 and no other team in baseball have yet won 80 games. They are 9 and a half games ahead of the second place Yankees in the division and seem to be set to win it unless something unforeseen happens in the last five weeks. Betts continues to lead baseball in batting average and at last count Martinez was tied for the lead in home runs. The later also leads in RBI’s and is only 9 or so points behind Betts in batting average. He could conceivably win the triple crown this year. All is going well for Red Sox nation at this point.

All Star Break (7-17-18)

Well, it is the unofficial halfway point of the season and the Red Sox are riding high. They now have a 4 and a half game lead on the Yankees for the division which is their biggest lead of the season. They have won all but 3 of their last 20 games and are probably playing their best ball right now. Let’s hope it can continue once they resume the rest of the season on Friday. Continue reading

Mariners @ Red Sox (6-24-18)

The Sox have been playing pretty good ball lately. They have had their struggles with pitching and scoring runs both, but overall are continuing to hold their own though they at present time are a half game behind the Yankees for the division. Mookie has come back into his own though he is not quite back to the level he was before his injury. We are looking forward to him returning to great form soon. Martinez has had a good game or two and continues to lead the majors in RBI’s. Devers has hit better the last few weeks and Bogaerts has been contributing quite a bit as well. The rest of the team has been doing pretty well offensively as well. The team is really beginning to take shape with just about everybody contributing up and down the lineup. If they could just get a little more consistent, things would be great. Continue reading
