After every series, we'll take stock of how each individual and group performance affects their overall value.

Lineup


Grouping everyone together continues to be the most efficient way to do this. I don't care about the homers from Ross, Salty, and Nava, because that was the extent of production from those guys. They were completely embarrassed in game 1, by getting held to just 1 hit. A better fight was put up in game 2, yet they struggled to get runners in scoring position and fell short as we expected. Game 3 was lost in the 1st inning and they marked themselves as the worst Sox team since '66.

Starting Pitching

Are you kidding me? I know the team is horrible, but 6 1st inning runs surrendered by Aaron Cook and 3 by Stewart is shameful. They combined for 3.2 innings, 12 hits, 11 runs (11 ER), 3 walks, and 1, just 1 strikeout. As we thought, Felix Doubront gave the Sox their best shot at a victory, but the offense sucks and can't produce more than 3 runs in a game.  I can't wait for Thursday.

Bullpen

I am completely ignoring what Aceves does and with that said, the bullpen was much better than the starters, but not great.

Managing

It's been out of Bobby's hands for a while now.

 

Overall

Another one of those "no explanation needed" moments.
