For the second consecutive year, the Boston Red Sox have got off to a very slow start. In 2011, they were 0-6. In 2012, they are 1-5.

Once again, pitching has been the main concern, and the numbers are very close to what they were last year. In the 0-3 start both years, Boston gave up 26 runs. Through the first six games in 2011, Sox starters had a 6.68 ERA. This year, it's 6.77.

While the two starts are very similar, this season seems much more concerning for the long-term welfare of the team.
