MLB: Boston Red Sox at Kansas City Royals Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

Among the reason the Red Sox are still digging themselves out of a hole and do not find themselves where they want to be is that the big hitters have not done what is typically expected of them. (Jen McCaffrey; The Athletic) ($$)

Among those in that category who is struggling relative to expectations: Mookie Betts. (Peter Abraham; Boston Globe)

The good news is that, despite some continuing struggles, they swept the Royals. As we saw last year, part of the key to being a great team is beating up on the bad teams. (Sean McAdam; Boston Sports Journal) ($$)

Despite Ryan Weber not making it through two yesterday and the bullpen being opened up, Mike Shawaryn is still waiting for his major-league debut. (Chris Cotillo; Masslive)

Durbin Feltman was supposed to fly to the majors after being drafted last year. Instead, he’s struggled this year and has to adjust to the new path. (Alex Speier; Boston Globe)
