    Red Sox Remaining Schedule

    As someone mentioned in another thread (67RedSox I believe), the Red Sox of recent history have been one of the strongest before the AS Break and have often struggled after. With this in mind, I thought it would be advantageous to preview the remaining schedule.

    Currently, the Sox are 60-41 with a 1/2 game lead over TB and they have the most wins in baseball.

    July

    3 vs Rays (59-41, 2nd ALE)

    3 @ BAL (57-43, 3rd ALE)

    3 vs Mariners (47-52, 3rd ALW)

    August

    3 vs DBacks (51-48, 2nd NLW)

    3 @ HOU (33-65, 5th ALW)

    4 @ KC (45-51, 3rd ALC)

    3 @ TOR (45-53, 5th ALE)

    3 vs Yankees (52-47, 4th ALE)

    3 @ SF (45-53, 4th NLW)

    3 @ LAD (51-47, 1st NLW)

    3 vs Orioles (57-43, 3rd ALE)

    3 vs White Sox (39-57, 5th ALC)

    September

    3 vs Tigers (54-44, 1st ALC)

    4 @ NYY (52-47, 4th ALE)

    3 @ TB (59-41, 2nd ALE)

    3 vs Yankees (52-47, 4th ALE)

    3 vs Orioles (57-43, 3rd ALE)

    3 vs Blue Jays (45-53, 5th ALE)

    2 @ COL (48-52, 3rd NLW)

    3 @ BAL (57-43, 3rd ALE)

    Thoughts

    HOU and CWS drastically weigh down the opponents winning percentage as the Sox have a fairly difficult schedule the rest of the way. The soft spot of the schedule is in August, yet unfortunately we play those teams on the road (HOU/KC/TOR/SF etc). The Sox have been fairly good on the road this year, but they will need to capitalize on those wins because the beginning of September is brutal. Detroit, Yankees, Rays, Yankees, and Orioles in order. Those series will be huge in determining who will win the division, who will win WC, and who won't be playing in October.

    Damn that is a tough schedule.  

    I wish the Red Sox can play Houston more often.   LOL

    Oakland is 10-0 vs. the Astros.

    That is a very tough schedule the rest of the way--61 games---30 H--31 A. The equalizer is everyone has to play 162. Everyone can be the spoiler. I hope we make it to the dance; if we don't I hope we make, perhaps, the O's feel the pain of 2011--down the stretch with the last 3  @ Camden Yard.

    We have been a good away team so far. I think once we clear the hurdle of surpassing the 69 win mark we can push on to greater heights. That was such a devastating number of wins for this team that there will be a reason for celebrating when that number is put behind us.

    It looks like Buch will be back for the stretch run---perhaps mid August--that will be like picking up a top of the rotation person at the trade deadline. Also I'm in hopes we see the emergence of Rubby and his big arm in the pen down the stretch--maybe long relief--spot starter.

    Perhaps Xman or WMB will get hot at AAA and make a contribution in Boston. Go Sox beat TB!!!!!!

    On the bright side...

    Playing .500 ball for the rest of the season gets them to 90-91 wins which would contend for WC spot. If they play slightly better than that, we are looking at a 95 win team which would contend for the division and would be a near lock for the post-season.

    October baseball may be coming to Boston this year :-)

    not a bad schedule.  only six more games to go back to the west coast compare to Tampa Bay going on the west coast for 15 more times (LAD, Ariz, Seattle, Oak, and LAA) plus their last six games of the year is on the road especially in two cold cities.  Hopefully the last three games in Toronto, they open up the dome!!

    Re: Red Sox Remaining Schedule

    September use to be for the prospects to show what they could do when rosters expanded, now, with the extra WC slots more teams are within striking distance--Hope is still there. There really are no easy teams--KC, Tor, Houston, Seattle--even if they are out of it they have a reason to play out the schedule--possible favorable impression for next year, catch the eye of an opposing  GM looking for talent, beat the high budget teams, etc.---

    Well, there are only three teams that can be a spoiler against the Red Sox which they are Yankees, Toronto and Colorado cuz they will be calling up bunch of prospects.  Orioles, Rays, Tiger (of course the Sox) can not use much prospects down the stretch of the season except maybe pitchings.   So in the past many years, Rays and Orioles have been a spoiler to the Sox.  Now they may not be able to do it this year!!

    Re: Red Sox Remaining Schedule

    You really need to weight the schedule based on how many games you are playing versus each opponent(meaning, count the teams current record for each game you play against them, and then add up all the W/L).....for the Sox remaining games, that would come to 3094 Wins and 2956 Losses or a .511 Winning Percentage.....Tampa Bays reamining schedule is 3158 Wins and 2961 Losses or a 516 Winning Percentage.....so if all the teams we are playing continued to win at the same rate as their current winning percentage, Tampa has a tougher remaining Schedule than we do......that said...that does not take inot account which teams are playing much better ball than their current winning percentage indicates....The Dodgers and Mariners for example are playing much better lately, we are done vs the Dogers and have 3 left vs the Mariners, the Rays have 3 left in LA and 6 left versus the Mariners...all in all, for the So,  it will come down to the games it has versus the AL East contenders....play over .500 in the games versus the O's , Rays and Yankees, 29 of our remaining 61 games and we should end up in pretty good shape.

    Re: Red Sox Remaining Schedule

    The sox at the very least should go .500 which puts them at 91 wins, I think they'll win tonight. I can see the Yankees fall off a cliff and the same for the hired guns in Toronto. Tb, det, bos, should be in. That's assuming the sox make a few minor deals to shore up holes. These teams should all beat up on each other which should stop any serious threats to the sox. Of course a monumental collapse is always possible.

    Re: Red Sox Remaining Schedule

    IMHO there is no such thing as a harder or easier schedule. They all play 162 games against basically the same teams. They also have the best record against their own division.
    It boils down to how good they play against all teams. Records now and how they are playing now means nothing.

    Just like Lester's past games meant nothing to today's game. Just because you throw a stinker today it has no affect on your next start. A team on an 11 game win streak like the Jay's had. Meant nothing when Boston met them and beat them,

     

    I juist believe it all comes down to how you play on any given day.

    LOVE my  Red Sox, Bs, Cs, Pats and enjoy the ride every year.
