The 2013 Red Sox have done a great job of turning themselves around from the debacle that was the 2011 and 2012 season. They’ve won 10 of their last 12 games which knocked the Yankees out of a chance for the AL East championship and created a 9.5 game lead over 2nd place Tampa Bay.
The recent games have not necessarily been easy for the Sox but that’s what makes them so great to watch! They’re becoming very good at walk-off wins in the last (sometimes extra) innings. Just last week, Mike Carp crushed a grand slam to center field in the 10th inning to beat the Rays 7-3.
Since we are Chowdaheadz, we know not to Jinx anything or get too excited until it is actually happening but this is a much better feeling than Septembers past!
If this team keeps playing like they have been, I foresee some late nights and long innings in our future!
