Red Sox 7, Orioles 18: No more pretending; Red Sox look bad

With an 18-7 drubbing the exclamation mark on their 4-7 slump, there's no denying that the Red Sox just don't look like a very good baseball team right now. Bud Norris entered Sunday afternoon's game with an ERA over 17.00. Granted, that's a figure taken from just three games, but even then it should be enough to inspire some confidence in a Red Sox win. It's hard to produce an ERA that high as a starter in one game, let alone over three. And if Wade Miley had suffered his disaster outing against the Nationals, he was coming off a scoreless start against Tampa Bay. There are few guarantees...

Don’t panic, hits will fall

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — The Red Sox lost their first series of the season last night and it coincided with a shutdown of their offense against the Rays.Getting nervous?Don’t be.This offense is allowed to have an off-series, and they just had one, that’s for bloody sure: They were 1-for-23 with runners in scoring position and averaged just 2.3 runs a game over the three games.

Red Sox Notebook: Time to sink to old low

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Rick Porcello is done being fancy.His offspeed pitches have been great at times this year, but the 26-year-old knows what he has to do if he wants to pitch past the sixth inning with some consistency (he’s gone five, six and eight frames in his starts this year).Porcello is going back to basics.

LeBron’s law of motion

LeBron’s law of motion

It was an effort that would have warmed Red Auerbach’s heart. The Celtics, per his fondest wish, were instigators, not retaliators.But last evening, the Bostonians were defeated by Newton’s Third Law — with a Cavalier twist.Sir Isaac, who was into analytics way before Brad Stevens, found that for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. But when you factor in LeBron James, well, it isn’t so equal. Thus, Cleveland’s responses were louder.
