Ben Cherington's Failures Are Getting Exposed

Updated about 9 days ago.

Inside this edition of Without a Curse, Alex talks about what has been a dreadful stretch for the Red Sox. The starting pitching continues to be horrendous, and the situational hitting has been just as bad. That's a recipe to lose a lot of ball games. Arguably the biggest problem with the Red Sox lineup is that it's only been five hitters deep. Mike Napoli has an OPS below .600, and the bottom three hitters have been automatic hits. Red Sox right fielders are slugging below .200 this season as well. There have been a few scapegoats, as Juan Nieves, Edward Mujica and Allen Craig are no longer with the big league club. If Justin Masterson and Daniel Nava don't pick up their performances, Alex says they could be next. In the "Around the League" segment, Alex talks about the AL East standings, and the red-hot Yankees. Michael Pineda has been dominant this season, as has Andrew Miller closing out games. Speaking of dominance, that's just one of many words that can describe the run Bryce Harper is on. Would the people who have called him a bust like to take their words back? Follow Alex on Twitter, @AlexReimer1. No show next week, as Alex will be graduating college. Without a Curse returns on Monday, May 25.
