    "Not losing our minds, this is just a poor team offensively"
    There is too much proven talent on this team for them to go on like this. The Sox WILL turn it around. 1-5 are all 300 hitters, and they will be this year too. I do agree with you about ST. I dont like the way they have come out of the gates, as a team, the last couple years. Too many slow starts from important pieces.

    The Red Sox need to replace Lackey, as he is sunk cost as far as being a top end of the rotation guy. Buy this summer, the Red Sox need to bring back
    Doubrant and cut the losses on Lackey. Lackey has never finished anything on the big stage.

    Funny thing,

    If a team with a record of 42-20 gets a bad week (like 0-6) in the middle of the season, nobody will challenge the idea that this team won't make the playoff. All will said... well they got a bad week!

    The problem with the last week is that everyone of us were so anxious to see that wonderful team, we all though that we could'nt lose one game. Expectations were so high, it's like a young kid that the morning of christmas find out that he cannot enjoy his new toy because the toy is broken.

    By the end of the year, Crawford, Youk, Ellsbury, Gonzalez, Pedroia, Lester, etc will all be where we expect them to be. The only question marks I have is about Salty and Beckett. For the first, Sox have the resources to solve this problem with a trade. For Beckett, I'm more concerned but... hey, he is our 4th guy!

    Re: 1 & 7......... IS IT TOO EARLY.......

    Not a Red Sox fan but I did not understand the Crawford deal until I looked at the declining numbers last year of the Red Sox on NESN.  The team needed to make a splash, throw some wood on the fire and while A-Gon was a great pickup, Carl Crawford had more market recognition, but 7 years at those prices for a non power hitting outfielder....? Dumb.  Is it too early?  No sorry at 1-7 with the warts showing more and more everyday this is an 88-89 win team.  Sorry Red Sox fan.

    Re: 1 & 7......... IS IT TOO EARLY.......

    I like to be optimistic but at this point 8 games into season, one well pitched game which is wicked scary. The other scary part is that we are stuck with Beckett and Lackey for 4 more years each. Becketts velocity is down. I remember when he came here in 2006, he threw at 97 MPH, now he is down to 92 that is 5 MPH down. Lackey is a West Coast pitcher good enough for the Western Division, not a good fit for the American League East. Matsusaka throws 110 pitches by the 5th inning, Clay Bucholtz has a good year offset by a bad year. The only bonafide starter is Lester. This team needed Cliff Lee more than Crawford but what do you do with Beckett, Lackey, Wakefield, and Matsusaka. A lot of nothing here spells a long year. This team is the worst team money can buy.

    It is an extra bad day for Billy boy.  Not only are the Sox off to a dreadful start but Glenn Beck has been canned by Fox.  I wonder who will do Bill's thinking for him now?

    Re: 1 & 7......... IS IT TOO EARLY.......

    Pedroia excepted this is a very sorry team. Don't expect two wins in a row, esp. against Yankees. Second win sometime before end of April. Bucholz had a good year last year. Don't expect a second good year in a row. Red Sox pitchers don't do that.

    -Problem with this comment is that most if not all 42-20 games and serious playoff teams never have an 0-6 stretch over the course of the season.  People keep saying this to rationalize this team stinking.  The 0-6 start is significant in terms of what the team showed and also it is significant statistically in a game and season in which there are waves and ups and downs.  Think about it this way: to make the playoffs you are allotted about 66 losses.  To use 1/11th of them before winning a game is a serious problem. 

    -Also, with it being a game of ups and downs losing the first six means that then if you win 3 or 4 in a row you then will have another down stretch.  Just like a basketball game where you fall behind by 15 points-you can make a run and cut that deficit down but then there is always another lull right after because so much was taken up to make the run.
