Cora keeps it positive
The starting pitching has been the most part abysmal, the baserunning has been suspect and the offense has been playing peek-a-boo so far this season, yet Boston Red Sox manager Alex Cora is keeping it positive.

Following a World Series championship, Cora knows how good his team is and also knows the 2-8 record to begin the season is more due to his team not playing good baseball.
In adding Saturday night’s 5-4 loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks as the latest way his team has found a way to lose a game, Cora refuses to give in to the notion that the Red Sox are a frustrated bunch right now.
"“There’s no frustration, we just keep grinding,” Cora said following the game. “We’ll show up [Sunday] and hopefully, we’ll have a happy flight. Go home and see the family on Monday and hang out with the kids and all of that and put everything in perspective and move forward.”"
It is that positive outlook that fueled the team’s World Series run in 2018. The difference is that last season they got off to a winning start. It’s a lot harder to get behind the positivity when the losses keep rolling, but perhaps some home cooking is exactly the recipe the Boston Red Sox need to end their hunger for more wins.
