June Is The Sox’ Time To BLOOM!! – [Salty Beevah Vol. 4]
The BoSox are barely above .500 as I write this, but hope is not lost though, quite the contrary. I think the time has come for the Sox to bloom now that June is here. The June schedule provides a chance to make up ground in the AL Pennant Race very quickly if the Sox can find their groove this month.
June 2019 Red Sox Schedule:
The WOOD: 2 @NYY, 3 v.TB, 3 @MIN, 2 v.NYY
The CUPCAKES: 3 @KC, 4 v.TEX, 3 @BAL, 3 v.TOR, 3 v.CHW
They’ve already split the first two with New York, and took the first game @KC leaving us at 2-1 for June leading into Wednesday’s match up featuring a Chris Sale start @KC. If the Sox can step up their game against NYY, TB & MIN this month, the rest of the June slate provides a golden opportunity to make up games in the division, and the AL as a whole. If Boston can squeak out a 6-4 or better in the 10 games vs. NYY, TB & MIN, the other 5 series should result in the Sox gaining much needed ground if they play like they are capable of. June is a true litmus test for this 2019 team. The opportunity is here staring right at us.
We play both the best AND the worst in the AL this month. Every game is against the AL, including all 4 teams in the division. We can not take the cupcakes lightly, we need to get down to business vs. those teams and build off that to get some of that swagger back that this team shows when they are clicking on all cylinders. We do not want to wait for New York to get healthy before we make our move in the standings.
This is the break we needed to help build some rhythm and momentum in the right direction in a hurry. After a slow start, this is the part of the season Red Sox Nation has been waiting for. The sun is out, we are getting into the meat of the season where the standings are starting to hold more weight every series. Our best ball is yet to come, some of our bats are due to warm up, and the time to capitalize is now.
Cheers to our beloved Sox tonight! Let’s throw up some crooked numbers for Sale tonight boys!!
