Which Red Sox Starter Are You Most Confident in Right Now?


Which Red Sox Starter Are You Most Confident in Right Now?Going into this season, it was unclear who among the Red Sox starters would be the "ace" of the staff. Nearly three months into the season, the issue hasn't cleared up much.

The Red Sox starters have been unpredictable over the course of the team's first 62 games, following a strong performance with a blowout loss the next time out.

Over the last week or so, however, the staff has shown signs of settling down, even if the pitchers haven't necessarily been getting the wins to show for it.

Josh Beckett has been pitching some of his best baseball over his last few starts. During that time, he's also had the misfortune of picking up two straight losses after not getting any run support. Felix Doubront, on the other hand, entered the year as the team's No. 4 starter, but surprisingly, he could be considered the team's most reliable pitcher so far.

Doubron't lefty partner in the rotation, Jon Lester, has been steady for the Sox all season long, but stats-wise, nothing jumps out when looking at the southpaw's numbers. Clay Buchholz, meanwhile, has been brilliant for the Sox in his last four starts, posting a 1.45 ERA over that span. And of course Daisuke Matsuzaka is new to the scene, but he could be an integral part of the rotation as the team prepares for a stretch run.

Pitching is such a big part of a team's success, and the Red Sox will likely only go as far as their arms will take them. Who do you think is the team's ace right now?
