The Red Sox have already had three 3-game losing streaks and a 6-game losing streak, 1/3 of the way into the season. Not sure this qualifies as anomalous or awful (Paul?), but it sure doesn’t inspire. We harped on the 2-10 start a lot early in the season, and while the Sox have played vastly improved baseball of late we are still experiencing the hangover of their god-awful start. The Sox, who have looked something more like world beaters for a long stretch now, are only 30-25, a truly mediocre record for a team with this talent.
Today the Sox try to avoid extending one of those three game streaks to four, and we aren’t optimistic. Yesterday’s regression for Aceves could easily happen to Tim Wakefield. The bats need to continue the late innings success from last night.
