Red Sox 3, Yankees 13: The Sox got destroyed, and I feel fine

The Red Sox were a disaster Tuesday night, but that's par for the course. More interesting (and encouraging) by far was the game Henry Owens had on the mound. The Red Sox lost to the Yankees tonight, 13-3. It's a complete disaster of a score. A hilarious beatdown that drives home the disparity between the two clubs this year and should be soul-crushing even in a year where all is lost and the only thing a win does is hurt draft position. And yet, it doesn't seem so bad. The reason for the positive attitude lies in the start from Henry Owens. Statistically speaking, it wasn't great. Three...

Ben Cherington is part of the Red Sox solution, but needs help

Ben Cherington is part of the Red Sox solution, but needs help

On his own, Ben Cherington is capable of great successes and great failures alike. A guiding hand could help eliminate the worst of those failures. With the Red Sox falling to pieces for the second straight season, there have been no few calls for the end of the Ben Cherington era. Where the failures of 2012 seemed less his fault than Theo Epstein's, and those of 2014 were less about bad decisions rather than the absence of good ones (and, frankly, an unfortunate free agent market ill-suited to fill Boston's needs), those combined with the disaster that is the last offseason have proved...

NEW YORK — Welcome to The (Gong) Show, Henry Owens.Save for a bumpy first inning, in which he nevertheless overcame problems commanding his fastball and gave up only one run, Owens was in the midst last night of a perfectly impressive major-league debut, every bit as promising as fellow left-hander Eduardo Rodriguez three months ago.In fact, the 23-year-old had retired 12 consecutive Yankees hitters and was sailing into the sixth inning with a one-run lead.
