Red Sox starting out for the season

I don’t care if the Red Sox win this season or not, I just want them to play better than last season and not be the laughing stock of the MLB. Last season was really harsh and the fans have somewhat abandoned their home team, but they have worked hard to better themselves and this year’s team is ready to go in fighting. The 2013 MLB season has just got in to full swing and so far it looks like the Red Sox might just redeem themselves after last year’s travesty.

After the marathon bombing, teams and fans have stood together, the optimism is building slowly again and there is a certain determination of not being beaten down by the recent events. Instead of fans staying home and enjoying elite online entertainment at sites like Gaming Club they are venturing out to support their cities teams and throw their weight behind events.

Opening day saw the Sox being pitted against an Evil Empire, who have been on a winning streak recently that now seems to be waning. The Bronx Bombers were set to play the Sox and it was hopeful that the Yanks Empire would topple and they would lose. The new Sox team had to prove themselves and started off the game with Jon Lester taking the mound and facing off against CC Sabathia. Lester got the game going with a bang as he made it through the first inning without allowing a hit to get past.

It took some last ditch home runs by the Sox in the 9th innings but they capitalised the singles and made it happen. This was their biggest weakness last year and it looks like this year they have managed to close the gap and get past the errors of the season before.

The Red Sox walked away with a win of 8-2 but honestly it was a touch and go game that could have gone either way. It was a little like tiptoeing on broken glass, but it was still a win-something that seemed to elude them most of last season. As a starting out game it wasn’t bad, but you can bet they need to keep improving, because the New York team was a little broken and the Sox can’t get ahead of themselves, they need to keep training and kick butt.
