"DON'T"-Bront Need Another Loss Like This, 7-0

He might have some of the best stuff in the Red Sox rotation, but Felix Doubront is the least trustworthy of them all. From his reporting to Spring Training out of shape to his inability to go deep into games to his annoying "yin/yang" performances, he's been a disappointment. Doubront is the new problem child of the Red Sox—now that Alfredo Aceves is in Rhode Island. Doubront gave up twelve hits in 3 2/3 innings—nine of them with two outs. For all intents and purposes, the game was over. Derek Holland shut down the Boston offense, with Jacoby Ellsbury the only member of the Carmine Hose to have more than one hit. Result? A humiliating 7-0 loss to Texas.
