The Boston Red Sox are officially DEAD

The Boston Red Sox were making their yearly run before the All-Star break and before they welcomed the New York Yankees and Robert Refsnyder to town. The Red Sox took the first game of the series with the Yankees taking the final two heading into the break and ever since then the bottom has fallen out of the Red Sox season. That escalated quickly.

After the All-Star break the Red Sox were still in last place in the American League East Division but were a good week or two away from being back in contention for a division title. Boston had their pitching looking the best it has been with Clay Buchholz at the top and their young core was performing as well as could be expected. That was then, this is now. Boston came out of the gate losing eight games in a row essentially ending the Red Sox season. If this losing streak came at the beginning of July or the beginning of August that would be a different story but this close to the July 31st trading deadline their season is essentially over and it is time to sell.

Ben Cherington, the Red Sox GM, is ready to sell, the fans are ready for players to be sold and the players are ready to go to a contender. Boston is not completely dead, they won’t be trading the likes of Mookie Betts, Xander Bogaerts, Blake Swihart, Hanley Ramirez, Pablo Sandoval, David Ortiz or Eduardo Rodriguez, but players like Justin Masterson, Koji Uehara, Shane Victorino and others may be preparing their ways out of Boston as we speak.

Any day the Red Sox lose is a good day and any season that Boston finishes in last place is a good season so it looks like 2015 is shaping up to be a great season for Yankees fans. 


  1. The red sox are one of the things I hate most int he world, however I don't think they are dead just yet. I think they have a run in them and with the Yanks on a 10 game road trip I think you just me see something different at the end of the next 10 games. I'm not saying they will be in first place by then, I'm saying they are going to make a run. Let's hope not

    1. They made their run right before the All-Star break in my opinion. If it wasn't a week before the team starts selling off key pieces I would agree with you Hans. Too close to thetrade deadline and too many key parts will be filled in with inexperienced rookies.


Sorry for the Capatcha... Blame the Russians :)
