The Boston Red Sox had high expectations coming into the 2017 season and currently sit third in the American League East at 22-21.

Boston will begin a six-game homestand with the Texas Rangers on Tuesday night, and before the game Red Sox president Sam Kennedy said the homestand is “just what the doctor ordered” for the struggling Sox.

Kennedy discussed several other topics, including Major League Baseball’s competition committee and the recent tragedy in Manchester, England.
