The Over The Monster Podcast - Episode 67 - The Problem With Starting Pitchers

In this 67th episode of the definitive Red Sox podcast, Matt Kory and Marc Normandin look back at the year that was in Red Sox starting pitching.

Jesse Johnson-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Looking over the wreckage of the 2012 Red Sox season might not be the most pleasant assignment, but that doesn't mean there isn't good information to be culled from the exercise. Who was good? (Nobody, really.) Who wasn't? (Well, pretty much everyone, thanks for bringing it up.) What can be expected of the group next season? (Oh, God, you really want me to answer that?) Marc Normandin and Matt Kory investigate those questions and probably more which would be relayed here if, you know Matt remembered right now.

Next year's starting rotation should look similar to this seasons with, likely, a few notable changes. That said, whether the team sinks or swims, or just kinda bobs about in the pool of mediocrity, is going to depend on the guys that wore those smart looking uniforms with "Red Sox" across their chests this season. Or "Boston." Either one.

It is in that spirit that this episode is devoted to the second of Matt 'n Marc's Year in Review series, the year that was in Red Sox starting pitching. Everyone who started for the Sox this past season is discussed, including what they did, how they did it, where they fit in on the team next year and beyond, and what we expect from them at that time. It's a revealing, in-depth, and totally serious (except when it isn't) 67th episode of the Over The Monster Podcast!
