The ice-cold Red Sox are poised to get white-hot

To say that things haven’t been going well for the Red Sox in 2022 is an understatement. While there’s plenty of time left on the calendar they aren’t doing themselves any favors with the way they’re playing. Add in the fact that a majority of their games this month have been within the division it’s easy to see why some are eyeballing the panic button.

Luckily for Boston, they’ve made their way through the monsters of the AL East and now get a three-game weekend series against the lowly Baltimore Orioles. Granted, the Red Sox aren’t doing much better than Baltimore is at this point in the season but it still offers the squad a chance to rebound. This series also marks the end of an incredibly long road trip and brings us into May.

With all that said, some players are carrying their weight and are doing what they can to try and deliver the win. Garrett Whitlock has been a beast in the bullpen while Nathan Eovaldi has given every ounce of gas he has in the tank for the starters. Add in Xander Bogaerts single-handedly putting the offense on his back and that about sums up the positives.

Not everyone is underachieving as some are just up and down right now. I’ve singled out three specific players that I think we all would hope to turn things around in what should be a relatively stress-free trip to the Charm City. If they can start to warm up as the weather does then it could offer a spark to the rest of the lineup to get things cooking.
