This season hasn’t been all bad for the Boston Red Sox so far
The Boston Red Sox have been off to a less than pleasant start. The bats have continued to stay cold. They have more losses than wins. The Sox are only half a game ahead of the Baltimore Orioles. Things are definitely not going Boston’s way right now.
It feels like all that is talked about is how bad they are and it is all doom and gloom. So I decided that instead of focusing on the bad, we should take a look at four good things that are happening for the Red Sox this year!
First on my list of things to look at is Xander Bogaerts. For a man that is trying to get an extension on his contract, he is doing just about everything correctly. So far he is leading the team with a .348 batting average. In his last seven games he is hitting .400.
If Bogaerts keeps this up it is going to be very hard to argue that he does not deserve the money he is asking for.
Not only is he being stellar at the plate, he fields a premium position at shortstop. Bogaerts already has one web gem this year when he leaped up to get the out against the Rays. He is the leader of this team and is showing everyone why he deserves this extension is a bright spot in this abysmal start.
