Inconsistency and bad pitching define Red Sox first month

The Boston Red Sox have started the season of May in shambles going 0-4 in the four games played so far in the month; but before we get to that, let’s look back to the team’s first month of the season. With bigger aspirations surrounding the team with the additions of left fielder Hanley Ramirez and third baseman Pablo Sandoval, the Red Sox lineup had the pop which it lacked in...

2013 is over, it's time to acknowledge Red Sox issues

Early exits by Sox starters are the primary culprits for a lackluster start GREG FIUME/GETTY IMAGESDan Shaughnessy is right. The 2013 Red Sox championship was “incredibly lucky and somewhat inadvertent.” It was a confluence of great seasons from the entire roster (lucky) in what appeared to be a bridge year (inadvertent). Not an outrageous statement there.Shaughnessy’s description...

Red Sox Fall Again To Evil Ones, Now At .500

(AP Photo)How you view the Red Sox situation today is emblematic of your Carmine Hose Worldview. You can look at the 12-12 record and conclude that this is the team you though you had back in February—interesting yet flawed, run-scoring yet pitching-challenged. Or you could look back over the last three games and realize that the team has gotten three quality starts out of the...

Sox Drop Second Game Straight To Yanks

The Red Sox came into Saturday’s day game hoping to be able to give Wade Miley some run support and pull even in the series with the Yankees.  Miley pitched well, but it ended up being a wasted start as the Sox bats were only able to muster 2 runs. The Yankees were the first team to crack the scoreboard when Brett Gardner hit an RBI double to score Gregorius.  The Sox were able...

John Farrell: Starting Rotation Must Overcome Inconsistent Ways (Video)

The theme for the Boston Red Sox’s starting rotation in 2015 has been inconsistency. Wade Miley turned in the latest uneven performance Sunday night against the Baltimore Orioles, allowing six earned runs on five hits and two walks while lasting just 2 1/3 innings in the 18-7 loss. The less-then-stellar outing has been just one of many from the group this season, however, bringing the rotat...

Sox Lose Star-Spangled Slugfest To O's, 18-7

(AP Photo)If you score seven runs on the road, you should win. Unfortunately, that precept assumes adequate major-league level pitching. The Red Sox now have the second-worst starter ERA in all of baseball (5.35). Ironically, the worst is yesterday's opponents—the Baltimore Orioles (5.52). Yesterday, Wade Miley didn't make it out of the third inning—giving up seven runs. Those...

Sox Knocked Around in Series Finale With Orioles

If I were to tell you that the Red Sox were going to score 7 runs in the series finale this afternoon, you’d probably think that would be enough to win the game.  Sadly that wouldn’t even get the team within ten runs of winning the game.  Wade Miley took to the mound, but couldn’t make it out of the 3rd inning.  Unfortunately the pitching that followed him also got beat...

Wade Miley Just The Latest Red Sox Starter To Struggle (Video)

Wade Miley couldn’t get out of the third inning Sunday. Though his performance was cringeworthy, he was just the latest Red Sox starting pitcher to struggle.

Sox Lead Early, but Rays Were The Winners in the End

The Sox took the first game of the series when they squeaked out a 1-0 victory behind Wade Miley’s strong start.  Today the Sox would have Joe Kelly on the mound vs. Nathan Karns for the Rays.  So far in the season, Kelly has been the most consistent starting pitcher for the Sox and while he would continue that trend for a while, he struggled in the 6th and it ended up being...

Wade Miley Works So Fast, He Missed Sox Run

Wade MileyAccording to ESPNBoston.com's Gordon Edes, Red Sox starter Wade Miley had no idea his team was ahead in last night's 1-0 win over Tampa. Not until he was out of the game, that is. Said Miley, "I didn’t know we had scored a run until the seventh or eighth inning. I’m thinking, ‘Extras.’ Then I’m saying, ‘We got a run! Hell, yeah!’" Miley also fell down twice...

Miley 'Wades' His Way To Impressive 1-0 Victory

(AP Photo)Tonight, he was more like Cyrus McCormick than Miley Cyrus. Red Sox starter Wade Miley was much more akin to the inventor of the mechanical reaper than the twerking twerp of the turntable. The crafty lefty went 5 2/3 solid innings (a far cry from his implosion in the Bronx), yielding no earned runs and just three hits in an eventual 1-0 Red Sox win. The Boston run was...
