Early Season Baseball

The MLB season is very early and I have enjoyed many games so far. Extra Innings is the one of the greatest inventions on this wonderful planet. I sit here; on a Monday night watching MLB games all across this great nation of ours. It is still early and you can’t get too high or too low on any team right now. You can never win a World Series in April, but let me make this clear you definitely can lose one this time of year. Before the season started many experts were predicting the Boston Red Sox to get into the World Series. The Red Sox have opened the season 2-8, by taking 2 of 3 from the Yankees this past weekend. I thought this would get the Red Sox going, but after tonight when the Rays beat them 16-5, I am not so sure. We are only ten games into the season but if the Sox don’t get it going very soon they will be trying to dig out of a hole, in the AL East where there are no weak teams.  Baltimore and Toronto have already shown that they will not be pushovers this season. The Yankees will always be competitive and the Rays, well, maybe they are the one weak team in the division. If you think Red Sox Nation is in an uproar now, it will be 100 times worse come May, if they are still playing like this. My gut tells me they won’t continue to play this bad.   There is too much talent on that team for them not to win. It will be fun to see this all pan out and like they say “That’s why you play the game”. Till the next time Raise your glass and hit it where they ain’t!
