Red Sox Report Card – April

It sure has been great having baseball back.

As always, the long winter left us waiting in great anticipation for the return of the thump of the glove and the crack of the bat. Spring has sprung and the Boston Red Sox – along with MLB’s 29 other teams – have taken the field.

The Sports Edge Farewell to the 2016 Sox

Farewell to the 2016 Boston Red Sox, a team that, in the never-to-be-forgotten words of former Vikings coach Dennis Green, were who we thought they were.

The Sports Edge Seems like (not so) old times

The recent weekend sweep of the New York Yankees by the Red Sox was a thing to behold, as it not only solidified the team's playoff position for the first time since 2013, but effectively ruined anyremote chance that the Yankees could get in. It also sent other teams in baseball the clear message that, despite their many ups and downs along the way, this team is peaking at the right time.

Red Sox Report Card August 2016

Well, this probably shouldn't come as a surprise.

The Boston Red Sox are in the thick of things in the American League playoff race as of the end of August, they sat two games behind the Blue Jays for the division lead and two games ahead of the Orioles and Tigers for the first wild card spot. They are very much in contention.

Red Sox Report Card - June 2016

What goes up must come down.

That's the unfortunate reality faced by the Boston Red Sox, whose white-hot month of May essentially ensured that June was going to be a letdown to some degree. The team just couldn't be expected to maintain that level of production for a full season.

Red Sox Report Card May 2016

You probably don't need me to tell you that May was a very good month for the Boston Red Sox.

The team has put up the best record in the American League for the month, along with some of the most impressive offensive numbers we've seen in quite some time. Apparently, April showers bring May power.

Waning Moments

I began writing a column under this title for the Maine Campus in 2002 and have never quite been able to shake the name. With a handle like mine, there aren't a lot of cleverly-turned phrases or pop culture references available, so if you think you may have read something similarly named a handful and a half years ago, you probably did.
