The Sox were 17-21 last year in the third week of May....4 games under .500. They then won 14 of 16 and spent most of the season in 1st place.
Sox are 8-12 on April 24 this year,and the season is over? No,it is not.
The offense is horrible,but that can change. I thought the A's were like the worst offensive team I had ever seen last year in May and June,and then by August they were unbeatable. Its baseball....never give up in April.
