The Boston Red Sox cannot stop winning.
In fact, they are off to the best start in franchise history. And new manager Alex Cora isn’t surprised.
“I just heard it for the first time. … I’ve been saying it for a while – we’ve been playing good baseball for a while, regardless of spring training. We’re playing clean and fast and pitching. We’re proud of what they’re doing.”
Meanwhile, stud outfielder Andrew Benintendi knows how good these Red Sox are. But he also knows it’s coming on both sides of the ball.
“Our offense is doing what it’s doing, and our pitching and our defense is consistent. We’re dangerous,” Benintendi says.
As for the Orioles, they are off to a shaky start. Plus, new pitcher Alex Cobb would be making his first start of the season. It didn’t go so well, of course. But manager Buck Showalter has an ideas as to why.
“Just a little rusty. Physically, he’s in good shape. He’s only going to get better. Tough conditions and a really good-hitting club swinging the bat well right now.”
But Cobb is more than ready to credit the Red Sox hitters.
In the meantime, the Red Sox have two more games against the Orioles before taking on the Angels. Can anybody slow them down?
