Let the Slaughter Begin: Mariners-Sox Gamer I

The next few weeks for the Red Sox: Mariners, D-backs, @Astros, @Royals (4), Off-day, @Blue Jays, Yankees, @Giants (things get a bit dicier after that in late August through the end of September). The best team in that stretch is 5 games over .500. That would be the Yankees and the Sox get to face them at Fenway. Time to clean some teams’ clocks, mostly on the road. I would be disappointed if they play less than .600 ball in that stretch.

That has to start with today and Saunders vs. Workman (who just gave up a run in the top of the 1st).

  • Sox ahead 5-1 after the Mariners’ half of the 4th. Workman just retired the side on 8 pitches, all of them strikes (2 K’s).

  • This is indeed where the Sox should turn on their jets.

  • 13-9 is awful close to .600, so 13 wins out of 22 games will be my personal benchmark for success in this stretch.

  • 1 down, 12 to go.
