Games 73 through 75 - Red Sox

Red Sox 4, Braves 1
Red Sox 1, Braves 0
Braves 2, Red Sox 1
Record: 46-29

The Red Sox scored 6 runs in 3 games this weekend. And won 2 of them. I can't be but so upset with their current 'win 2 of every 3' strategy.

In their last 10 games, the Sox have plated 38 runs, but 7 of those came in 2 innings against the Nationals' bullpen. Remove those gold-plated gimmies and the Sox' offensive struggles come into sharper resolution. And yet, in the immortal words of someone or other, it's baseball. In the course of any 162-game season every function will struggle to some degree. The season's final tally testifies to a team's ability to overcome those challenges. And the Sox are 6-4 over the 10 games in question. I hate to be all blandly complacent - it's certainly not a common personality trait - but my dominant emotion regarding the Sox at the moment is confidence. This too, I suspect, shall pass.

Now, the Mets, on the other hand...
