Looking at this year’s Boston Red Sox, it’s hard to believe this is the same team that won the World Series last year. As exciting and wild as the beards they sported back then, they are as dull as dishwasher this go ’round. It’s not just that that Sox are losing, they’re losing big.

Last night’s game, which the Sox won 3-2 over the Twins in the 10th, was a perfect example of scrappy teamwork at its best. It took four pitchers and a key bunt from Will Middlebrooks who hadn’t even attempted a bunt since 2008, to rally the team and win.
