White Flag Being Prepared, Red Sox Lose, 11-1

It doesn't get much worse than this. The Sox scored their first—and unfortunately only run—in eight days in an embarrassing 11-1 drubbing by the Halos. Rookie left-hander Eduardo Rodriguez had a terrible outing, going just 1.2 innings and giving up seven earned runs. E-Rod seems to do best against mediocre teams, and gets pummeled against good teams. Not a good trend. Boston did have nine hits—all ticky-tacky—including two by Xander Bogaerts. Rumor has it that Ben Cherington is readying the white surrender flag to fly high over Yawkey Way—signaling that The 2015 Carmine Hose are indeed sellers.
