Red Sox Update (September 28th)

Well it wasn’t the weekend Sox fans were hoping for to say the least. Good news is that the Sox magic number to secure the Wild Card is down to 2. Facing Toronto and then Cleveland to close out the year I think it is pretty safe to say they are in. Then the task at hand will be the Angles who Boston has been dominating this year. This will set up another ALCS against the HATED Yankees (unless they manage to lose to the Tigers) and I’d expect the Red Sox to be a bit more prepared in that match-up. As of late the Yankees have owned the Red Sox so the Red Sox will look to their superior pitching to get them out of the woods in that respect.

The Red Sox are looking good going into the last week of the regular season and at over 90 wins I’d have to say they had a great year. Ups and downs like any other baseball season I think pitching and pitching depth were the big story of the 2009 season. The addition of Victor Martinez is another big storyline that New Englanders won’t soon forget. I’m expecting that before the close of September the Red Sox will be popping corks to celebrate another Wild Card, BRING ON OCTOBER.
