The Chicago White Sox are headed to a historic ballpark in Fenway Park. They will have three games there against the Boston Red Sox over the weekend. After winning three games in a row, they are hoping to see the winning continue as the season goes along.
This is going to be a very interesting series between two teams that went into the season with high expectations. Before their three-game winning streak, the White Sox were not in a good place. The offense was just horrid as they couldn’t score.
Speaking of not being in a good place with a bad offense, the Red Sox are off to a horrendous start in 2022. They were in the American League Championship in 2021 but right now they are tied for last in the AL East with a record of 10-16.
They are coming off a series loss to the Los Angeles Angels and were outscored by a lot in the two losses out of three games. The White Sox need to do what they can to keep them down and out while they can. They are certainly catching them at the right time.
The Chicago White Sox need to take the Boston Red Sox seriously in this series.
The White Sox players cannot look at Boston’s record and see that as an easy series win. That is a team that is running out mostly good pitchers like Nathan Eovaldi and Michael Wacha. They also, despite their struggles, have a lot of talent in that dugout in terms of offense.
The Red Sox have studs like Trevor Story, Rafael Devers, Xander Bogaerts, and JD Martinez amongst others that can absolutely pound the baseball. If the White Sox don’t get good pitching, the Red Sox will end their offensive slump in a big way with names like that on the roster.
Boston is 3-7 in their last ten and losers of two straight. They also play in the AL East which is really competitive with the Tampa Bay Rays, New York Yankees, and Toronto Blue Jays in the mix so it is going to be hard to compete but we know what they are capable of at times.
If the White Sox go into this series thinking that they are playing a team as bad as the Chicago Cubs who they just swept, the Red Sox will destroy them. Tony La Russa needs to have the boys ready to go so they can continue winning and getting their season back on track.
