Mighty Mariners Pummel Sinking Sox Ship, 8-2

When the 2014 Red Sox get elite starting pitching, they have a chance to win games. When they get performances like John Lackey's on Monday and Jake Peavy's last night, they have no shot. Peavy gave up seven earned runs in five innings during a listless 8-2 defeat at the hands of the Mighty M's on Tuesday. Our offense, once again, came almost exclusively from Brock 'Babe' Holt—who launched his second HR of the year to account for all of Boston's runs. We are getting perilously close to 'Fire Sale' time on Yawkey Way. Look out Jon Lester, Felix Doubront, and Koji Uehara.
