The Sox won’t face a truly daunting road trip. 

The Sox only have two road trips of nine games or more. There’s one in July that will see them go to Oakland, Detroit, and Tampa, but the last two stops there don’t figure to be much of a test.

There’s a nine-game trip in September, which could be very important, that will see the Sox head to Seattle, Minnesota, and Detroit. If there’s anything on the line, that trip will determine whether the Sox are playing for anything with the season’s final home stand.

Other than that, the Sox don’t have a road trip longer than seven games, if you decide that the eight-game one that has two games on the Northside of the city doesn’t count, which it doesn’t.

The Sox are going to be one of the most-watched teams in 2019, given the amount of young, dynamic players that will be cracking the lineup full-time and the addition of two or three young arms to the rotation.

This is what Sox fans have been waiting for for a couple seasons, and now they know the trail the team will travel. For some, it can’t get here fast enough. And hey, anything that has the Mets on it can’t be all bad…unless you’re the Mets, of course.
