Offensive Indifference Sinks Sox Again; Fall, 4-0

Jake Peavy didn't pitch very well, but he wasn't awful either. A few mistakes resulted in three HRs—but with the Red Sox offense these days, one opponent run is plenty. The immortal Bud Norris (who the Astros basically gave away last July), held Boston stymied for eight innings—and only a blister kept him from completing his humiliation of The Carmine Hose in an eventual 4-0 loss. Three measly hits came off the Boston bats—by future Hall-Of Famers Brock Holt, Daniel Nava and David Ross (our pathetic version of "Murderers' Row"). This team has some serious issues to deal with—the question is should they be buyers or sellers?
