Red Sox: 3 takeaways from Boston’s sweep of the New York Mets
Red Sox sweep Mets in quick Queens series
In an odd but sometimes seen occurrence in baseball, the Red Sox swept the New York Mets in a two-game series. As we all know, the usual series is either three or four games but we had a fun one in Queens this week. While there is plenty to talk about in these two games and with Boston already in Texas to battle the Rangers for a four-spot, we should look back before we move forward.
If you read the temperature of Red Sox Nation you will get mixed results. Some are totally optimistic and are behind this squad without a second thought. Others are ready to storm Fenway Park at the moment something isn’t going perfect for the team. When it’s all said and done they’re currently 16-9 and have a nice 3.5 game lead in the AL East. While it may be too soon to begin gassing up the duck boats we shouldn’t scoff at what the team has done to this point.
Again, there’s no rest for the wicked and the Sox are getting ready to face off with the Rangers tonight in a series that can give them some series breathing from in the division. Let’s take that quick look back on the team’s short stint in Queens before we head down to Arlington and what may be a fully packed Globe Life Park.
