April is nearly in the books, and the Boston Red Sox's depth chart already looks quite different than it did when the team broke camp a month ago.
Boston has new faces atop its lineup, in center field and in the setup role, and seems to be providing a case study for why consistency is so hard to come by in the majors—even for the defending World Series champs. Prominent players have already lost their jobs and been sent to Triple-A, while lesser known acquisitions and prospects have proven to be more valuable than we once thought.
The Red Sox enter the final day of April with a 13-14 record, which is equal parts disappointing and completely redeemable. Perhaps the World Series hangover does exist, but Boston is hardly in an insurmountable hole. They're still in contention, and they're still one of the deeper teams in the league.
