As Nathan Eovaldi was cruising to the Yankees' lineup Wednesday night it struck me. No, it wasn't a sense of that all was suddenly right with the Red Sox' world with a starting pitcher actually living up to expectations. The feeling I couldn't shake was how mind-numbingly difficult it seemed to...

For...

Last week in this very space I wrote that though it may not be time to worry, concerns surrounding the Red Sox were very real. The column was merited at the time.

Chris Sale has been a good if not great pitcher since joining the Red Sox. The team is 40-23 when he has started, with the lefty possessing an ERA of 2.84 with a .202 batting average against throughout the past three seasons. This year? Not good. He is 0-4 with an 8.50 ERA. Only one pitcher in...
