The Red Sox are 3-12 since they gave up on the season and traded Adrian Gonzalez, Josh Beckett, Carl Crawford, and Nick Punto to the Dodgers.
The Dodgers, it may comfort you to know, aren’t a whole lot better.
Los Angeles is 6-9 since the deal and has fallen 2.5 games further back in the National League West. The Dodgers are 5.5 games out of first and 1.5 games out in the wild card race.
Here’s a look at how the ex-Sox are faring:
Beckett: He is 1-2 with a 3.86 ERA in three starts. He has struck out 18 over 18.2 innings in the National League. His walk rate has gone up a bit, which seems strange. But three starts aren’t much to judge.
Gonzalez: It’s only 15 games, but Gonzalez has so far been a disappointment in Los Angeles. He is hitting a modest .242/.304/.371 — .226/.288/.321 in the last 13 games. He homered in his first game for the Dodgers and hasn’t had one since. The Dodgers are averaging 3.2 runs since Gonzalez joined their lineup.
James Loney is hitting .273/.289/.364 for the Red Sox, by the way. He also has one home run.
Punto: He has pretty much been the same player he was in Boston. Punto is 2 of 13 without an RBI for the Dodgers and started two games.
