Red Sox Minor Lines 4/14 - 4/16: Catching Up

It's our first multiple day Minor Lines of the year, as real life comes rushing in to mess everything up.

The good news is that some players took these few days to get off the schneid, get on a roll, or otherwise not suck. The bad news is that more of them seem to have taken the opportunity to either start or continue sucking.

It's not the best three days. Not the worst, but definitely not the best.
