Red Sox Pitchers Need to Change Things Up If They Want a Shot at Making the Postseason (Video)

2,614

It's no secret that the Red Sox have struggled this season, and a sweep by the Blue Jays at Fenway Park has left the team at .500 and at the bottom of their division.

The Red Sox pitching staff owns an MLB-worst 7.03 ERA in the first inning, and hasn't been able to escape the first unscathed.

While the decline of the pitching staff is concerning, it's not the only thing on the minds of the Red Sox and fans alike. The trade deadline is quickly approaching and the Sox have some decisions to make about what the team is going to look like as they finish out the season.

Check out the video above to hear what the Boston Globe's Peter Abraham had to say about the pitching problems, the trade deadline and more.

Aetna Strikeouts for A Cause

For every strikeout by a Red Sox pitcher at Fenway Park in June, Aetna will donate $250 to Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program. Through June 25, the donation mark stands at $30,000.

Through their continued efforts in the local community, Aetna is helping to build a healthier world -- one city and one strikeout at a time.
