It's not been a very fun April for the Boston Red Sox. The three-headed rotation of aces has not yet lived up the billing, and the "run prevention" tag used to describe the team assembled in the offseason now seems like a cruel joke.
At the plate, it hasn't been much better, with David Ortiz, J.D. Drew and Victor Martinez hitting a combined .176 through 13 games.
Of course, that's not to say that the Sox will remain mired in a season-long slump, but the sample size is growing without signs of improvement.
So what is it that worries you the most? Here are the stats:
The Red Sox are hitting .249 as a team, 19th-best in the majors. They've plated 50 runs, which ranks them 26th in the league.
The Red Sox have a team ERA of 4.58, good enough for 21st in the majors.
The Red Sox have committed 10 errors, the seventh-most in the majors. Their .980 fielding percentage ranks 19th in the league.
There's plenty of room for concern, but which area do you see as the least likely to improve over the course of the 162-game season?
Text "SOX1" to 542542 to vote for the Red Sox' hitting, text "SOX2" to 542542 for their pitching or text "SOX3" to 542542 for their defense.
