What A Difference A Month Makes!


I felt a lot better at the beginning of April than I do at the start of May...

One month ago....

The Red Sox were ready to role on a promising season....

Sure there were questions in the starting rotation and the bullpen....

But no one could deny that we had some hitters....We were going to score a bunch of runs....

Trevor Story .217....Verdugo .238...Hernandez .195...Dalbec .147...JBJ .147...Arroyo .186....you get the idea....

Bogaerts and Devers are delivering.....hopefully they still play for the Red Sox in the near future....

21 out of 30 teams in Batting Average

25 in Home Runs

22 in RBI

Boston Red Sox v Baltimore Orioles

One month ago....

The Celtics were the best team in the NBA....

Best defense and an emerging offense....

A superstar player knocking on the door of the top 5 in the league

Now.....after dominating down the stretch of the regular season....after sweeping the once mighty Nets...

They lose one game to the Bucks and now face a must win in Game 2 as they head to Milwaukee after this one.....

It really doesn't seem fair.....

One month ago....

The Bruins were starting to figure themselves out.....

Added some defensive help....

Split up the top line to distribute the scoring a bit....

The goalie tandem seemed to fit OK.....

Ullmark was emerging as the go to guy down the stretch

Then they drew Carolina in the first round.....( 0-3....outscored 16-1)

You just can't score on these guys....even with their top goalie out....

Game 1...the Bruins play OK and lose 5-1.....and you start to believe that there is no way to win.....

Apparently April showers bring May losses.....

Boston Bruins v Carolina Hurricanes - Game One

Now, it could turn around....The C's and B's can climb back in with Game 2 wins.....

And the Red Sox could score 2 runs in the same game.....

I prefer to look at the negative....(one of many bad qualities that I possess....)

By this time next week we may be left with only our sinking Red Sox....

How are the Revs doing?
