Does that date send chills up your spine? If you're a Red Sox fan, it should. That was the year the Sox got off to their second-worst start ever — 6-19 through their first 25 games.
It's also the last time the Sox got off to a 2-5 start.
Granted, 2-5 is exactly one game worse than last year's Red Sox were at this point in the season, but in case you were wondering, no Sox team has ever started the season 2-5 or worse and made the playoffs.
