The Red Sox started off decently, but then fell out-of-whack with the terrible start by Brad Penny. He was decent earlier in the season, but now he's just a liability, like Smoltz and Clay Buchholz. Yeccccccccccch.
In other news, the Astros lost the series against San Francisco after another dreadful pitching performance. Brian Moehler was the culprit this time; he started off just fine, but then let it get away later in the game. The bullpen wasn't much help either.
Felipe Paulino might be getting another start, and it looks like Bud Norris will get at least one more too. That's probably good news in Norris' case (though I hedge because rookies can be unpredictable). In Paulino's case, it's just a matter of how he'll lose.
