Roller-Coaster Year For Red Sox Heads To Home Stretch

It's been a strange up-and-down season for your 2016 Carmine Hose. Even measured by FenwayNation's own Dalton Jones Industrial Average, it's clear to see: the early hope, the precipitous fall in June, and the slow and steady re-bound since then. With just 23 games remaining, Boston sits in a pretty good spot—but post-season glory is by no means guaranteed. By turns, this team has had: great and horrific starting pitching, solid and abysmal relievers, awesome and pitiful offense. What combination will emerge over the next three weeks? It's hard to say, but the mix of talented youth and sage veterans should help keep them on an even keel. And, the fact that they go head-to-head in every remaining game with AL East rivals is going to make for a spectacular sprint to the finish. Buckle up!
