Time to Panic?
I was watching last night’s game and I began to wonder, “are the Red Sox done?” I was still worried this morning while listening to local radio stations stabbing forks into Boston’s “idiots.” And if you looked at the last 2 games and how our starting pitching has faired, you are likely worried too. However, consider the following:
The Sox are 1 game above .500 for the month of September.
We are still ahead of the Yankees by 1/2 game.
We lost 6 of our last 11 games, but Starting pitching lasted nearly 6 innings on average and let up a respectable 3 earned runs per outing during that time.
We have 12 games left, the last 7 at home (3 of them against the Yankees).
The Yankees have 13 games left, the last 7 away (the last 3 in Boston).
With the Red Sox currently sporting a .676 winning percentage at home, the Yankees .514 on the road and Schilling on the mound tonight, I feel much better about our chances down the stretch. Lets Go Sox!
