Red Sox: The top 5 positive stories from the 2019 season
The Boston Red Sox won’t be ending their 2019 season how they would like but there were still several positives to come out of this year.
Red Sox Nation we’re getting closer and closer to the end of a very painful journey. Less than a year removed from raising the Commissioner’s Trophy Boston finds themselves just a few games away from elimination. It’s a hard reality but it’s one that has seemingly been coming for a long time now.
I’ve never been the type of sports fan that believed in the “championship hangover,” but I’d be damned if I didn’t admit that I think it’s a thing after this season. The Red Sox should’ve come into this year ready to rock but a poor offseason and rocky spring training set the tone for the summer we’d all have. With the offseason just a few weeks away we may be seeing a new look Boston squad come March.
Though this will be a season that we’re quickly going to do our best to forget it wasn’t a complete loss. We saw the offense continue to light up the league and pick up right where they left off in 2018. Then there was the debut of Michael Chavis and the Ice Horse would soon be born. There were some other high points as far as this season is concerned and we’re going to take a look at what I feel were the top of the top.
When I sat down to make this list I had to nail down my criteria and do it quickly. As far as moments that were postive there were too many to keep track of. So I decided to take season-long archs that truly boosted not just the organization but Red Sox Nation as well.
With that all said, let’s get to the good stuff!
