The Sox cannot hit. It's as simple as that. The defense has been poor so far but that is probably an aberration. The defense should regress to the mean and be a lot better the rest of the way. And don't forget, the pitching is quite good.
But the offense is awful. And Tyler Flowers, wow! He can't catch and he really can't hit.
Rick Hahn has to start re-tooling this offense. The Sox really have no alternative.
