Red Sox: Alex Cora is very upset with his team’s recent losing streak

The Boston Red Sox have undoubtedly surprised this season of MLB, since this was expected to be a rebuilding campaign, but they have competed and are in the lucha for the AL East title with the Tampa Bay Rays, who recently swept them and moved away from them several games, in addition to having lost 7 of their last 10 games.

For manager Alex Cora this has been extremely frustrating and he acknowledges that his team is not playing well and at a press conference mentioned to WEEI’s Rob Bradford that he hopes his guys will play better.

I’m going to say it simply and clearly: We are not pitching well, we are not defending well and we are not hitting. We are in a rut at the moment and we have to improve. As I see ourselves at the moment, we are slower, and I know that we are in August and playing is hard. But we have the opportunity to play in October, but we have to show it every day.

At the moment, the Red Sox are a game and a half behind the Rays in the division, ranking first in the AL wild card at 2.5 games ahead of the Athletics and 4 of the Yankees who are in fourth.

I am a fan of the San Francisco Giants, a number one defender of Barry Bonds and a critic of the Los Angeles Dodgers. Fernando Tatis Jr., Juan Soto and Ronald Acuña are the future of baseball, Mike Trout is overrated, and the Astros deserved to be taken away from the World Series for cheating. Besides baseball, I also enjoy soccer, football, basketball, and just about any other game that includes a ball or a ball. I am also an amateur musician, penniless gamer and very nerdy.
