This just hasn’t been Chris Sale’s year. (Sean McAdam; Boston Sports Journal) ($$)

It’s a feeling he’s not used to having but one he is not shying away from acknowledging. (Chris Cotillo; MassLive)

The bad news is we are entering a part of the year where Sale has really struggled in the past. (John Tomase; NBC Sports Boston)

But let’s not forget that the Red Sox had a very successful stretch of baseball last week. (Matt Vautour; MassLive)

Matt Barnes did his part as well. (Alex Speier; Boston Globe)

That doesn’t mean the Red Sox couldn’t use some new relievers. (Jen McCaffrey; The Athletic) ($$)
