And now Kimbrel issues a bases-loaded walk for the go-ahead run. Awesome!

This is 41 year old Koji's 8th appearance in the 12th game of the season.  They need Carson Smith back soon to save him from Farrell.

Okay, so this isn't the Craig Kimbrel the Sox paid for. Good to know.

So today Buchholz has his once-a-month good start and Koji blows it.

This pitching staff really has trouble getting everyone on the same page in the same game—starter does well, bullpen blows it; bullpen does well, starter blows it.

Its easy to put this all on the pitchers, but heck, our offense hasn't done much of anything today.

Yeah, the offense has been quiet for a couple days now. But the pitching staff has stunk about 90% of the time so far this season.

I'm not worried about Kimbrel.  In 6 2/3 innings, he's allowed 3 hits and struck out 14.  He's struggled with his control a couple of times, but that's not really unusual this early in a season.  I am worried about starters 2-5.

Some of us have wondered how Buchholz is still getting chances; I can't believe Matt Barnes hasn't been shipped to Siberia. He's awful.

Boston's $217M investment in David Price continues to not pay off.

He came to Boston and he's a highly paid pitcher, so he turned into a pumpkin like all the other ones.


Being somewhat facetious, but it does seem that the Red Sox have no luck with free agent pitchers.

He was leaving everything up and over the plate today.

I think if the Red Sox have any chance to make the playoffs, Price has to be a sub 3.0 era guy. It's not looking too good.

yes also what is with the offense being so feast or famine. They looked like they could have scored 7 in the first inning today and then get completely shut out.

starter number five is wright. so far he is the best starter we have and has an ERA of about 2.14.

the rest of the rotation has been unreliable so far. but it is still early in the season. even if they go on to lose today, there are still 147 games left and they are 1 game below .500. it's a bit early to start jumping off buildings for me.

Wait, I thought this was all because Swihart couldn't call a game...
