2014 Boston Red Sox Season Begins in T-Minus 4 Hours
That video still gives me chills and if it doesn’t pump you up for Opening Day then you got no pulse, meng. The defending champs are in Baltimore to kick off the 2014 campaign and take the baby steps towards a repeat, something that no Red Sox team has ever accomplished. What a difference a year makes: last year at this time everyone had already written off the 2013 Red Sox as basement dwellers with an overmatched manager. Now the Red Sox are the defending champs with pretty much the same group of core guys as last year; add in some key pickups like Pierzynski and Mujica, plus the healthy return of Andrew Miller and the all star potential of Xander Bogaerts, and you have one hell of a team. The only thing that can derail this conquest is injuries, and you can never predict those. With every other contender in the AL East seemingly getting better, its going to take a consistent effort for the Sox to be a playoff contender come October. For now, I’m just happy warmer weather is coming our way, and the Boys of Summer are back together. LET’S GO SOX!
