Correct on all counts. I'll add a couple things:1) The offense was less potent in the second half of the season, and has been mostly terrible the last couple of weeks, especially Ortiz, Betts, Bogaerts, and Bradley—four of their most important hitters.2) E-Rod might be able to pull off a good start, but yeah, having Porcello and Price turn into pumpkins is the death knell.

Yea they look like **** again right now, this series could be over quickly. Price is the biggest big game choker I've seen.
It was a great year, they just went cold at the wrong time. It happens.In hindsight, the Big Papi celebration tour probably was a distraction at the end of the year.
Too often, we judge other groups by their worst examples while judging ourselves by our best intentions.
Sad stuff watching Ortiz go out like that. So important to the history of the Red Sox. Completely rewrote history in Boston. Unbelievable hitter. To see what he meant to the Red Sox players was unbelievable. Betts Boegarts Benintendi Bradley Jr. Pedroia Ramirez perhaps Encarnacion Price Porcello Rodriguez Wright etc the team should be loaded next year. Wouldnt be surprised to see Farrell fired. It should also be interesting to see if Moncada can steal 3rd base or if sandoval can mount a comeback. Bright future for this team.
