***2015 MLB BONUSES***
The Red Sox desperately need a win to end their current losing streak. Atlanta has proven to be no pushover.
The Braves have been better than expected this season. I know it might be old news now but this team was pretty much gutted during the offseason so the fact that they have been hanging around .500 impresses me.
Their pitching is legit but the lineup is light – despite what the numbers are saying..
Their margin for error is super thin but they are capable of hanging with Boston if the pitching gives them a chance.
Williams Perez is probably not a name you know but he has been effective for Atlanta this season.
The first year hurler might find the fully stocked Red Sox lineup a little more than he bargained for though. In fact I am counting on it.
However, just because he get roughed in this one doesn’t mean you should totally forget about him. In purely NL Matchups he in not a bad bet.
The Red Sox are really slumping coming into this one having lost 6 in a row to division opponents Baltimore and Toronto.
Seems like the perfect time to throw in some interleague play by welcoming Atlanta.
This season is quickly going off the rails in a way that even their worst fears might not have predicted. This is a 4 gamer split between the two venues and Boston needs to have some positives before hitting the road.
I know he wasn’t contributing a ton but missing spark plug Mookie Betts doesn’t help.
I suppose at some point the Red Sox will get some value out of Rick Porcello but it might not be this season.
He is better than he has shown this season but I have never been much of a fan.
Unless things really start to turn around for him and the team he will be a fade for me in most situations.
I want to make this one of those but I think the Sox just might slug enough for him.
