Red Sox Report Card - April 2018

Well now – that’s a hell of a way to start the season.

The Boston Red Sox just had the best April in the team’s history, winning a record 19 games in April (along with two out of three in March). After this red-hot opening month, the team sits atop the American League East with a 21-7 record.

New manager Alex Cora has clearly reached this team in a way that the departed John Farrell never quite managed toward the end of his tenure. That new energy seems to have contributed to the big start (though we’ll see how everyone is feeling come the Fourth of July – or even Memorial Day).

There are a few players struggling, but overall, the team has performed as well as their record indicates. We’ll just see if they can keep it up.

On to the Report Card.

Road to the World Series 2017

Another long MLB season has come to an end. All 162 regular season games have been played. And a of this writing, just 10 remain with a chance to take home a World Series championship. Two-thirds of the league’s teams have packed it in and headed home for a long winter of wondering what might have been and awaiting the arrival of next spring and the ever-present hope that that season brings.

Red Sox Report Card – August 2017

It seems like just yesterday that spring had just sprung and we were seeing the first pitches thrown on Opening Day of the 2017 MLB season. And now, just like that, the leaves are turning and we’re in the home stretch. Just one more month before the postseason starts.

Red Sox Report Card – July 2017

And now we’re getting down to the nitty-gritty.

The 2017 MLB season is four months gone. The standings are shaking out and the Red Sox look poised to do battle with the Yankees over the next 55 games for the honor of taking home the American League East division crown.

July wasn’t a great month for the Red Sox – they wound up shy of the .500 mark and bid farewell to their division lead. The bats have continued to struggle even as the pitching has flourished, leaving fans to once again wonder whether this team will ever be firing on all cylinders.

As we move into the dog days of August, we have to wonder if Boston will be able to put all the pieces together and start performing like their talent level says they should. If they do, they’ll lock down the division. If they don’t, it’s going to be a very tense two months.

On to the Report Card.

Red Sox Report Card – June 2017

With the end of June, we’ve basically reached the de facto halfway point of the MLB season. Sure, the All-Star break is generally considered “midseason,” but in terms of a true midpoint, the end of June is it – three months down, three to go.

The Major League Baseball draft is vastly different from those of the other major sports leagues. In the NFL and the NBA and to a slightly lesser extent the NHL, draft picks are expected to join their new teams and start performing more or less immediately.

Not so with MLB.
