2014 Boston Red Sox: Biggest Early-Season Surprises and Disappointments
Elise Amendola

Two weeks into the defense of their 2013 World Series title, the Boston Red Sox find themselves in a similar position compared to recent years.

Katie Sharp and Justin Havens of ESPN Stats and Information pointed out that Boston’s record through 12 games is below .500. That’s also happened at the start of the 2010, 2011 and 2012 seasons—all of which saw Boston miss the playoffs.

Is there reason to panic? It’s truly too early to tell.

Injuries and ineffective play from certain position players have prevented Boston from getting off to a better start. Once they’re able to get healthier as a unit, the wins should begin coming more frequently.

Let’s take a look at which early-season performances have surprised Red Sox Nation and those that have disappointed thus far.

 

All statistics from RedSox.com and are current as of April 13.
