Wait, don’t go.

Just when we were starting to put names to faces, just when we were starting to remember what a home run looked like and just when we were starting to get used to all the winning – so much winning – the Red Sox left town Sunday nearly unrecognizable from the motley crew that dragged into town at the start of their homestand.

Who are these guys?

For one, the Red Sox are on a six-game winning streak after a 7-2 homestand, which when combined with the New York Yankees’ downturn landed them back in the top spot of the AL East with a solid three-game lead.

Two, the home run amnesia is over. Chris Young had two on Sunday, Eduardo Nunez added his fourth in nine games with the Red Sox. Eight hitters account for the last 10 homers, and the Red Sox have 17 in their last 11 games.

Three, the overall offense is alive again, scoring six runs on average here per game on the homestand, which was capped by Sunday’s 6-3 win over the White Sox.

Four, the trading deadline came and went last week and now Nunez, Rafael Devers and Addison Reed have joined the band as smoothly as Ringo Starr, Ronnie Wood and Nils Lofgren.

Five, the band is playing with one smooth, jamming sound now that the David Price sensitivity crisis has subsided, hopefully for good.

The Red Sox are leaving for a five-game foray against the two closest competitors in the division – two games with the Rays in St. Petersburg, Florida, and three against the Yankees in the Bronx.

The Red Sox are playing their best baseball at the absolute best spot in their schedule.

In one week, they’ll be back at Fenway. By then, we should have a very good handle on their real and true identity.

“I think we knew that in spring training – we have a good squad and the pieces that we’ve added throughout the year have all been amazing, all the way to (Doug) Fister (claimed off waivers in late June),” said Young. “Guys are coming in with the right mentality.”

It’s good for the narrative to note that ever since president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski pointed out, facetiously, right after the trading deadline that the big-splash Yankees had become the Golden State Warriors of baseball and would never lose again, it’s the Red Sox who have not lost a game while New York has gone 3-4.

Starts like the one Fister put up Sunday – three runs allowed over 61/3 innings – is just the kind of workaday output any team would want from its fifth starter. He is just the latest in a line of pitchers who are meeting or exceeding all expectations.

That’s been the secret sauce to the Red Sox’s nearly season-long flirtation with being near or at the top of the division, but it’s strained belief at times in the worthiness of the team because its offense was so inconsistent.

Now, when the offense starts to click like it has with the deceptively simple additions of Nunez and Devers, the Red Sox start to look complete. Manager John Farrell said that even when Dustin Pedroia and Hanley Ramirez return to the lineup, likely on this coming trip, he will find a way to keep both Nunez and Devers in the lineup.

Of course he will. He has to.

The Red Sox are better with the new guys.

That’s the way baseball organizations should work: Baseball operations put the best talent in the hands of coaches, who find the best ways to put the talent in the best position to succeed.

It’s taken 112 games for the Sox to look as good as they think they are, but there’s no denying the shiny-new-car feeling with this team right now.
