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.

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.
