It's official: After last night's 3-2 loss to the Rays, the Red Sox are the worst team in baseball. The sky is falling! The sky is falling!
It's obviously not going to stay this bad, right?
Well, here's something worth a thought (if not a whole day's pondering): What if it is?
What if the Red Sox really are fatally flawed?
What if Carl Crawford can't handle Boston?
What if the rotation, outside of Jon Lester and Josh Beckett, is too raw and/or mediocre to compete with the league's elite teams?
What if Jacoby Ellsbury really will end up leading the team in home runs?
Look, the Red Sox aren't even through 10 percent of their schedule. And chances are, they're going to turn this thing around.
But when? And by how much?
As the Asoxalypse continues, it's worth thinking about.
