    How bad has this 2014 offence been?

    If it has seemed to you that this is one of the worst Red Sox offences you've ever seen, it turns out that it's not just your imagination.


    At 3.91 runs scored per game, the 2014 team is on pace to being the second lowest-scoring Red Sox team since 1968, the Year of the Pitcher.  The only other team that was worse was the 1992 team.


    In June, they have scored 47 runs in 15 games, an average of 3.13 per game.  But that includes the 10-run game.  In the other 14 games they have scored 37 runs, an average of 2.64 per game.


    Since May 16, the Red Sox have had 3 separate 3-game stretches where they've scored 5 runs total, or less.

    Ask the SOX pitching staff, I'm sure they could tell you.

    Remember at one point of the year, they were missing at least six starters from last year team.  Ellsbury, and Salty are gone.  Drew just signed with the team, and was sort of doing rehabbing.  Napoli, Middlebrook and Victorino were or still on DL.  So that is six hitters missing from the line up most part of the month of may. Now Napoli is back.  Drew just came back two days ago.  

    Once Victorino and Middlebrook (not sure what to do with him) come back, they will have more power hitting. Papi was an alone power hitter in the line up for the most part of the month of may.  Of course he was intentionally walk alot.

    But we should all be happy to see how strong is their pitching.  Never saw that both Workman and De La Rosa are capable to be part of the rotation.  Doubront could be a trade bait once he come off of the DL.  I rather to trade him cuz of his medical history.  Bucholtz could be traded too, but who want him especially he ll be making 12 millions plus next year and a year after that!!

    When your 2 best hitters are in a mini-slump the Offense is going to struggle. They hit we will be OK. Papi is pulling everything and that's a bad sign. When he's on he hits to Left and Left Center. Pedey is probably pressing, knowing how much he cares about winning.

    Yup, I said between 1991 and 1993 so 1992 makes perfect sense.  Could you imagine this offense once Ortiz is gone and Pedey is 2 years older?  Looks like Matt Kemp is showing signs of life.  Better buy him while his price is still blue-lighted.........

    There is nothing to worry about at all. Cherington said recently that this team WILL start winning. I am sure it will happen any day now.

    Re: How bad has this 2014 offence been?

    the pitching - other than a couple of bad apples - is pretty good

    the offense is horrific.  i remember every game we should expect to score over 5 runs.  now it seems like work very hard to push 3 across and that's the # we have to manage to win with.

    We have lost a lot of games by one or two runs.  The pitching, for the most part, is keeping the team in the games.  IMO, it wouldn't take much to turn those close losses into wins.  Having Napoli, Drew, and Nava in the lineup should help.  We need Pedroia and Papi to get hot.

    And I really wish AJ would stop swinging at so many pitches out of the zone.

    Will they have more power when Middlebrooks comes back? There's no spot for him and he can't hit.

    Papi doesn't need to work hard. He got the extension he always complains about, so what motivation does he have?
