The Red Sox lost 4-3 to the Minnesota Twins this afternoon, falling under .500 to 3-4 in Grapefruit League games this spring
Time to start panicking!
All jokes aside, there's no reason to worry about a damn thing. Mookie's only had five at-bats. JD hasn't had one yet. Price, Sale, and Eovaldi haven't pitched yet. Besides, these games mean nothing.
Offensively, there have been some really hot starts. Take Jackie Bradley Jr. to start, he's 6-for-8 with two dingers and three ribbies. Bryce Brentz, back with the organization, is 6-for-12 with two dingers, two doubles and three ribbies. Raffy Devers, 6-for-11 with three ribbies. Brock Holt, 4-for-8 with a dinger and four ribbies. Even Tzu-Wei Lin, 5-for-11 with three doubles and two ribbies, and Sandy Leon, who's 3-for-9 with a dinger which came today. Remember, he's fighting for a catching position.
Also can't forget number-one prospect Michael Chavis. He's 4-for-13, but three of those hits have left the yard with two men on base.
And lastly, number-three prospect Bobby Dalbec. He's 3-for-8 with one ribbie and a team-high five walks, as his .643 OBP is highest among all 12 players who've had at least 10 plate appearances.
Through one week of spring games, plenty to feel excited about!
