AL East Rivals Meet for Second Time
The Boston Red Sox visit the Toronto Blue Jays on Monday in the opener of a four-game series between the American League East rivals. Toronto won two of three when the teams met in Boston last week.
Although the Red Sox are 7-9 and haven’t played, there’s truly no better time for them to do so than against the Blue Jays, who lead the AL East at 10-6.
The Blue Jays, on the other hand, have been doing exactly what people were thinking they were going to do and that’s being one of the best teams in baseball.
Will Blue Jays Offense Get Going?
The Toronto Blue Jays‘ offense has not been bad by any means. Still, with a lineup featuring Vladimir Guerrero Jr, Bo Bichette, Lourdes Gurriel, Matt Chapman and a few other high-level hitters, it is likely that they’re going to even step it up a notch sometime in the near future.
For Toronto to be the team it wants to be, it offense will have to be much better than it has been. Boston is the type of team that can put runs on the board at any given moment, although the Red Sox have also struggled at the dish in certain games.
Red Sox are Struggling
The Boston Red Sox are two games under .500 and have only played 16 games. However, with a team that has as much talent as the Red Sox, this is certainly not the way that they were hoping to start the season.
The Red Sox enter the series after losing two of three against the Tampa Bay Rays, and the reason why they lost that series was due to their inability to put runs on the board. The Red Sox only scored two runs in two of those three games.
If any team in baseball is going to want to compete with the Toronto Blue Jays, they’re most likely going to have to outhit them.

Nathan Eovaldi Is going to be on the mound for the Boston Red Sox. Toronto has done a great job against him throughout his career. Hitters are hitting almost .285, and he has a FIP above six.
