2014 Boston Red Sox Team Information

2013 World Series Champions... Now What?

The Boston Red Sox stunned the baseball world by fighting their way from the bottom of the pre-season polls to clinching a playoff spot and ultimately winning MLB's top prize, the World Series. Through a brotherhood of beards, mixed emotions regarding the Marathon bombing on Patriots Day and a roster and management shift, the boys from Boston prevailed and overcame any obstacle that came before them.

New manager, John Farrell, took a team that experts picked to finish 5th in the AL East standings and turned them into aggressive, eager and determined players that went on the field each day with something to prove. After a grueling season and an extended post season, the Red Sox hoisted yet another World Series trophy above head and celebrated into the next morning. The ensuing Duck Boat parade and celebration in Boston has become a familiar site and one that seemingly never gets tired.

During the off-season, the Red Sox had very few personnel changes, however, one of the few was a very noticeable departure of Jacoby Ellsbury. Ellsbury ended up in rival territory, dressed in pinstripes for the hated, New York Yankees. A move that disgusted most Sox fans, yet did not surprise anyone.

Spring training came and went and all eyes focused on opening day. What will 2014 bring for the Boston Red Sox? 2013 World Series championship rings on opening day at Fenway Park? Sure. But what about the rest of the season? Do the Red Sox have the depth and talent to make another playoff run? Will they repeat as 2014 World Series champions?

2014: Sluggish Start

Through nearly a month of regular season baseball, the Boston Red Sox have spent most of their time in the basement of the AL East. Through ten games, the team only managed 4 wins and through 20 games, the team managed 9 wins which kept them locked into the last place spot in the AL East. After that point, the team managed to pick up some series wins against key opponents and move up as high as 3rd in the AL East.

However, New York, Toronto and Baltimore are keeping the Red Sox at bay. The Sox have struggled to put the pressure on the 3 teams leading the pack. The Yankees sit on top of the AL East standings with a 2.5 game lead through 25 games.

If Boston wants to repeat in 2014, they'll have to turn the heat up on the competition and continue pushing forward. They'll need more reliable starts from their pitchers as well as leadership in the dugout.
