Many wrote the Sox off by the end of April but it’s a long season and baseball has a funny way of eventually gaining some expected balance to the teams that have great pitching. This is what we are seeing now with the Red Sox, winners of 7 of their last 8. They sit behind the second place Yankees by only a game and a half.
The standings might still not be in their favor but they have only let up 13 runs in their last 7 games. Matsuzaka pitched a near no hitter and Lester tossed six innings tonight only letting up one run.
The great pitching added to a resurgent David Ortiz and you got a potion that can work. Keep in mind that this team is built for the post season and if they can somehow get an invitation they might have the best chance.
I am keeping my Sox on, pulling them up real high and enjoying the ride!
