The big Red Sox news from the week was the signing of 27-year-old Cuban outfielder Rusney Castillo. Alex talks about how Castillo factors into the organization’s future plans, and why he thinks this is the first of many dominos to fall over the next several months. Alex also discusses the Red Sox’s latest prolonged losing skid, as the club has dropped eight consecutive games. Though the pitching staff has been putrid, the season-long theme of failing to hit with runners in scoring position continues to rear its ugly head. The Red Sox have gone 10-for-74 with RISP throughout this stretch. Yikes. Jackie Bradley Jr.’s minor league demotion is mentioned, too, and Alex attempts to figure out what it says about the Red Sox’s plans for him in 2015. In the “Around the League” segment, Alex analyzes the mediocre AL East and talks about which teams he’s rooting for in the playoff races down the stretch.
