    You don't have to throw them under the bus....

    A mere "we're struggling would do". To say I'm not concerned is a lie. And for the poster that stated "what do you expect him to say, that we suck?" You're real deep thinker.
    Boston ranks 20th in the majors in starter ERA (4.57).

    Manager Alex Cora said heís not concerned about the starting pitching.

    They are not playing like a team. I know baseball is a sport of mainly individual matchups. But they are all trying to carry the team on their backs individually and then getting down in the mouth when it does not happen. Everything in the batting order after Hernandez is pure shit right now.

    Why by the way are we expecting pitching to carry this team? That was not the plan. The pitchers have performed above expectation. We should not be shocked if they turn into pumpkins.

    They could pitch better. What sucks is that nobody was brung in through a trade. Basically thatís like a white flag . Yankees made moves and look reenergized.

    My brother called me after the game. I picked up the phone and said "Red Sox Hot Line; the line is hot, the SOX are not." My brother responded with a phony laugh.

    I guess your days of starting the game thread are over Max. Time for someone else tomorrow. Good luck.

    If they have no urgency whatsoever. Cora probably called a team meeting . Everyone of those guys should look themselves in the mirror. They havenít done their job.

    I think they might feel that the FO gave up on them after seeing the flurry of moves made by so many teams while the Red Sox stayed almost entirely idle except for landing a big bat that is on the IL who plays a position at which we didn’t need help.

    I hear you. Sucks. Hopefully they can win a ball game. Seems like awhile ago.

    This. No player will admit it to the press, but if their performances don't look uninspired enough, the glum faces are revealing.
