The Red Sox Are Back and This Is Not a Good Thing

A short time ago, some reporter write an article asking if the Red Sox should pack it in and start preparing for the 2020 season. They were floundering at the time. I chuckled when I read the article.

Over the past seven games, the Sox have scored 15, 9, 1, 8, 2, 14 and 9 runs. That’s a ludicrous 8.3 runs per game. They won 6 of those 7 and have won 8 of their last 10. They are 3.5 games back of the Rays. They have now scored the second most runs in the American League. The Red Sox have woken up and they are coming on strong. I have no doubt that The Sox will be about a 95 win team by season’s end.

The Yankees need will their stars back to compete. To date, I have been thrilled with the performance of the “replacement Yankees.” Brian Cashman has done a brilliant job of building a deep team and organization, but let’s not fool ourselves, these back-ups, for as good as they have been, can’t compete with the Red Sox.

Let’s hope that Aaron Hicks performs well when he returns and Giancarlo Stanton, Didi Gregorius and James Paxton aren’t far behind. The Yanks need to keep pace with the surging Red Sox and be prepared for a long race with the Red Sox. In order to compete, they’ll need their full healthy squad.

From Compton to the Bronx.jpg

"A young man from Compton rises to the highest levels of baseball greatness.

Considered one of the classiest baseball players ever, this is Roy White's story, but it's also the story of a unique period in baseball history when the Yankees fell from grace and regained glory and the country dealt with societal changes in many ways."
