At 13-17, the Boston Red Sox aren’t giving fans many reasons to be optimistic.

A closer look, however, reveals that the Red Sox are improving, albeit gradually.

The Red Sox are 6-4 over their last 10 games, an improvement from their previous 10-game stretch, which was an improvement from the first 10 games of the season. Translation: The Red Sox are getting better.
