Red Sox Tailspin Gets Worse

After a 13-7 drubbing at the hands of the Tampa Bay Rays last night, the Red Sox are spiraling out of control with no end in sight. Eduardo Rodriguez looked terrible once again last night and was optioned to AAA Pawtucket immediately after the game, leaving yet another hole in the already thin Red Sox rotation. Now 4.5 games back of the Baltimore Orioles in the AL East and 9-15 in the month of June, the Red Sox are getting close to losing this season all together. What was once promising is now a disaster.

The “Fire John Farrell” conversation is once again heating up, especially after using his three best late-inning relievers (Junichi Tazawa, Koji Uehara and Craig Kimbrel) in a blowout yesterday, which just makes no sense. For a pitching-focused manager to have a struggling pitching staff is hard to swallow. The team struggles are certainly not all on Farrell’s shoulders because he’s not the one out on the field performing, but ultimately the Red Sox need a shake-up and the manager is the easiest solution. Farrell is a solid manager, but his in-game decisions have always been a bit questionable which make him replaceable, even if it is just to send a message to the team.

I don’t have a solution, but know that something needs to happen soon or this will surely be another lost season for the Red Sox. No one wants that…
