A poor opening day for the Red Sox as pitching did them in again. This time, however the poor pitching was done by the two off season acquisitions that were supposed to make the staff better this year. Price gave up 5 runs in the 3rd and Kimbrel walked two and then gave up a three run homer to Chris Davis, the first three run homer he has given up in his career. Is this what we are to expect the rest of the way. It would appear that the poor pitching by starters has rubbed off on what are supposed to be the bright spots so far. Their good pitching was supposed to rub off the rest of the squad. Let’s hope this doesn’t continue.
