It has been an interesting first month for the Boston Red Sox for sure.
Boston started the season terribly, losing five out of their first six games. Winning three of their next four against the Tampa Bay Rays, we were given false hope of getting back on track.
The Red Sox then lost four straight games to the Texas Rangers and the New York Yankees before catching some late-month heat. They swept three games from the Minnesota Twins and then took three of four from the Chicago White Sox to bring them within a game of .500.
There are still questions within the pitching staff, the bullpen, and especially the outfield as Jacoby Ellsbury and Carl Crawford won't be starting for quite some time due to injuries.
Boston still sits at the bottom of the AL East but does have a great chance at rebounding as they are set to play several underachieving teams in the upcoming month before taking on the Tampa Bay Rays and the Philadelphia Phillies.
With all that said, here are eight predictions for the Red Sox for May.
