MLB: Spring Training-Boston Red Sox at Baltimore Orioles Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Chris Sale has tried. David Price has tried. Nathan Eovaldi has tried. Rick Porcello has tried. All of them have largely failed. Where did it all go wrong for the Red Sox and their starters and can it be fixed? (Alex Speier; Boston Globe)

On the bright side, Darwinzon Hernandez could be on his way to helping the rotation in a major way in the next few years. (John Tomase; NBC Sports Boston)

In addition, Ryan Brasier has been pretty great out of the bullpen. (Mike Cratty; WEEI)

He and Matt Barnes are part of a relief corps that is just making it work. (Christopher Smith; MassLive)

Everything went spectacularly right last season but trying to replicate that entirely has been difficult and perhaps not the correct course of action. (John Tomase; NBC Sports Boston)

Boston is a city of teams that coexist rather well. (Steve Buckley; The Athletic) ($$)
