    Will the Red Sox make the playoffs?

    As die hard of a fan I am, things are looking pretty pessimistic, especially the way last nights extra inning loss went. I just don't see us having strong enough bullpen along with starting lineup (ellsbury, petty, youk hurting) to win enough games in a row to make a dent in the AL East or wild card



    Thoughts?
    2017/2018 Days

    A-Basin - 10/13

    Loveland Pass - 10/6

    2016/2017 Days - 34 (inc. 10 BC)
    2015/2016 Days - 57 (inc. 2 BC)
    2014/2015 Days - 58
    2013/2014 Days - 47 (inc. 6 BC)

    I'll tell you where. Someplace warm. A place where the beer flows like wine. Where beautiful women instinctively flock like the salmon of Capistrano. I'm talking about a little place called Aspen.

    had they addressed the Bullpen at some point.......maybe.

    I call this the 'lost season'. Far too many injuries to key personnel to be serious WS contenders.

    As much as it hurts me as a lifelong sox fan to vote this way, I have to say no. Just way too many injuries. But on the flipside, given how beat up they are (and have been for such a long amount of time) the fact that they're still in the hunt for a playoff birth at the end of August with injuries they've had is impressive!

    It's not the injuries. They've had plenty of offense. The bullpen is lousy. If you remove the blown saves, they'd be in first place.

    injuries don't just hurt offense though. Ellsbury, Cameron, Drew might've been the best defensive outfield in baseball. Youk is a gold glove first baseman, Pedroia Gold Glove at second.

    Even with the lousy bullpen, if that defense is on the field, I still think they'd be right there with the Yankees and Rays.

    I would love nothing more than the SUX to go down the drain but I dont think it has happened. Lot of BB left. They could use a little support from there fair weather fan!!

    As for now... GO PATS!
