What should be the Red Sox goal in September? Seems like a question that's been answered the same way for quite some time now: make the playoffs.
But that's certainly not the case this year, as the Sox are virtually out of the playoff hunt even with an extra wild card spot added this season.
So . . . what to do? Play the young guys. Ryan Kalish, Ryan Lavarnway, Pedro Ciriaco, Jose Iglesias, etc. Bring up some more pitchers and position players down in Pawtucket and Portland. Why not? This is a time normally not available for Sox prospects to show what they have, so it's important to utilize it to its fullest now.
