Somewhere in "The Flyover State" (AKA Connecticut), Bobby Valentine is smiling. After all, his 2012 version of The Carmine Hose was actually around .500 just before the break (43-43 on 7/8/12)—not ten games under. This year's Raiders Of The Lost Offense kept up their mission last night, falling 4-0 to the least formidable ChiSox starter they will face in the series. The immortal Scott Carroll fired 6 2/3 innings of one-hit ball (in his last start he gave up seven runs). Meanwhile, Clay Buchholz pitched just well enough to lose. This train wreck of a team needs a serious overhaul—a major trade, a few DFAs, some kind of shake-up to let fans know that this is not acceptable for the Boston Red Sox. Earth to Ben.
