Muddy Chicken Clouts Salami In 9-8 Sox Loss

Get used to this, sports fans. There are probably going to be a lot of 9-8 losses for your 2015 Carmine Hose. Tons of offense paired with highly questionable pitching tends to lead to those kinds of results. So it was in the Grapefruit League opener last night as Boston fell to the Twinkies over on the crappy side of Fort Myers. Dustin Pedroia (grand slam) and Xander Bogaerts (2-run HR) accounted for three-quarters of the run scoring, but the story of this game was really bad Red Sox pitching. Starter Joe Kelly gave up four runs, then pretty much everyone else except Matt Barnes got creamed. Also, Allen Craig went 0-4—dramatically lowering his already abysmal trade value. Folks, this could be a long year without a #1 starter.
