Red Sox Report Card - April 2019

Not exactly the start that Red Sox fans were hoping for.

In a season where they were expected to be among the league’s best, Boston has instead spent the entire month of April below the .500 mark; they’re currently sitting in fourth place in the division, behind the Rays, Yankees and Blue Jays and ahead of only the lowly Orioles.

It’s not ideal to see a team stumble out of the gate like this – particularly one coming off a World Series championship season and that was projected to contend for another this year – but fans have to remain calm. It’s early yet, and there’s a lot of baseball left to be played.

That said, the baseball that HAS been played hasn’t been … good. The 2019 Red Sox have struggled for stretches in all facets of the game, though they have looked better after an utterly abysmal start to the season. We’re here to talk about what has been, not what we hope is to come.

Red Sox Report Card – September 2018

And thus the best regular season in Boston Red Sox history comes to an end.

It wasn’t necessarily a September to remember in the micro sense – the Sox put up a record of just 15-11 over the course of the month – but in the macro sense, they put the finishing touches on the winningest season in the century-plus existence of the team, 108 wins in all.

That being said, it wasn’t as though Boston finished strong. The record wasn’t terrible, but it belied the struggles of the team. The pitching in particular had a less-than-stellar September. It’s not exactly the note on which you want to head into the postseason.

Even with that seemingly sub-par performance, however, this team was fourth in the American League in terms of winning percentage for the month. Basically, even when this team is at its worst, it’s one of the league’s best. In advance of everything being reset to zero as we head into the playoffs, let’s take a look back at the final month of the 2018 regular season.
