After six games, the Boston Red Sox find themselves with an 0-6 record.

An 0-6 record is pretty lousy for any team, but it's especially scary for the Boston Red Sox, the best looking team on paper. The Red Sox were swept up by both the Texas Rangers and the Cleveland Indians.

The Red Sox lineup consists of great players such as Dustin Pedroia, J.D. Drew, David Ortiz, Jacoby Ellsbury, and new Sox players Carl Crawford and Adrian Gonzalez.

Not to mention the fact that they have a great pitching rotation that consists of the likes of Jon Lester, Josh Beckett, Clay Buchholz, John Lackey, and more. 

So what's the problem?

The Red Sox are not scoring runs. But how could they not be scoring with such a souped up team? I doubt anyone could tell you the reason, possibly not even the Red Sox themselves. It could be the team chemistry, or maybe just that the team is cold in general right now.

The starting pitching seems fine so far, although the bullpen has been a bit shaky. Once the pen rights themselves and the bats heat up, the Red Sox should be fine.

So here's the question: should the Red Sox fans be panicking right now? 

No.

The baseball season is still young. The Red Sox lineup is just too mighty to be kept down the whole season. They have plenty of time to catch up, and they'll probably be able to prove that they're as good on the field as they are on paper.

They should be fine in a few weeks, especially if they can take two out of three in the upcoming series with the New York Yankees.
