Over The Monster Podcast-Things are looking up

With a sweep of the Rays the Sox are right back in this thing.

MLB: Boston Red Sox at Tampa Bay Rays Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

We didn’t know this for sure while we were recording since the game hadn’t ended yet, but the Red Sox swept the division leading Rays! The only thing better than sweeping the Rays is sweeping the Yankees and if this doesn’t qualify as a turning point then I don’t know what will. I think we were are cautiously optimistic at the beginning of the weekend, but many of us were expecting the worst. How could you not? It seems like everything has been going against the Sox this year. Fast forward and while we do have injuries to Pedroia, Núñez, and Eovaldi we have new blood stepping up in a big way. Michael Chavis had a huge hit on Saturday, Lin provides excellent defense, and hopefully the team can find a way to plug the rotation until Eovaldi returns. You have to love the fact that the Sox now have ten games at home including their next four against the Tigers. Now is the time to start climbing those standings.
