The Red Sox earned a win on Tuesday night, but it came at a steep cost.
The Red Sox have lost seven straight games, and they’ll be without two of their best hitters when they try to end that streak on Tuesday afternoon.
“We’re not going to listen to your guys’ [in the media] bull [expletive],” Pedroia said. “We’re just going to go play baseball.”
Tony Mazz admits he’s a bit of a pessimist, but in his mind there are 5 things to be happy about concerning the 2015 Red Sox.
When allowing three runs or fewer, the Red Sox now have the worst record in the American League.
At the quarter mark of the season, there are plenty of reasons to be concerned about the Boston Red Sox. But Michael Felger didn’t think Dustin Pedroia would be one.
The Red Sox have survived thus far without much hitting, but they’ll need that to change rather quickly.
“You can see flashes of Mookie Betts. Yet, after his RBI single Wednesday night against the Rays, he’s still hitting .203 this season and his OPS is a couple of ticks over .600 on the season.”
Hanley Ramirez, Dustin Pedroia and Mookie Betts highlight the positives that Dan Roche and Tony Massarotti took away from Boston’s Opening Day win over the Phillies.
Though only one game has been played, many spring storylines quickly became realities for the Red Sox on Monday.
