28 Of Remaining 43 Red Sox Games Against The AL East

Fully 65.1% of Boston's 43 remaining regular season games will be against their AL East rivals. We could have re-calculated the percentage, taking out tonight's game against the Cardinals—but that would have come out to 66.6% (not exactly the best number combination you could ask for). Of those key 28 contests, 7 are with The Bronx Embalmers, 6 against the Rays, 9 against the Jays...

Boarding the Workman Bandwagon

It’s hard to get a good feel for if the Red Sox bullpen, outside of Craig Kimbrel, is good or not. Matt Barnes has been reliable at home (1.44 FIP, 0.90 WHIP, 33.9 strikeout rate in 29 innings pitched) and anything but on the road (4.69 FIP, 1.37 WHIP, 21.7 strikeout rate in 27 innings pitched). Joe Kelly throws 102 miles an hour and can’t strike anyone out. Robbie Scott has...
