Last night’s 6-1 win over the Seattle Mariners made it 4-straight for the up-and-down, sub-.500 Red Sox, which got us thinking: Which song symbolizes the type of season they’ve had so far?

Answer: “Love Rollercoaster” by the Ohio Players


Why this song?

It’s simple really: The Red Sox have had such an unpredictable year, filled with highs-and-lows, peaks and valleys, or whatever other cliche’ you want to use.

You just can’t put your finger on this team, and it’s been quite literally like a rollercoaster.

Here are some stats to back it up, the Red Sox have had:

  • Two 3-game losing streaks
  • Two 5-game losing streaks
  • One 3-game winning streak
  • One 4-game winning streak
  • One 6-game winning streak

Talk about highs and lows, are these stats not the textbook definition of a rollercoaster or what?

The song says “Your love is like a rollercoaster baby baby.” However, if you replace “Your love” with “This team,” then this song is dead on.

“This team is like a rollercoaster baby baby.”

With the quirky, unpredictable Bobby Valentine at the helm, mixed in with the unprofessionalism of Josh Beckett, the uncertainty of the pitching staff, a tough AL East schedule, and the toxic nature of sports talk in this town, don’t expect this rollercoaster to go away anytime soon.
