    Any Sox fans here? You would think they could win at least one against the Skankers. I root for Boston when my Orioles aren't playing. What's the scoop? Why are they so bad this year?

    Maybe they want people to go back to hating the Yankees more.

    Red Sox Team ERA: 4.70

    Clay Buchholz: 4.56 (lead the team amongst qualifying pitchers)
    Jon Lester: 4.82
    Felix Doubront 4.86
    Josh Beckett: 5.23

    Their alleged closer, Alfredo Aceves: 5.36 (w/ 8 blown saves)

    Need I say more?

    Crawford wasn't producing last year when they were the best team in baseball from May to August.

    It's pitching. Period.
