It is the resiliency they showed on Thursday that proves the Red Sox aren’t finished yet. (Alex Speier; Boston Globe)

Chris Sale is the most important pitcher for that cause. (Sean McAdam; Boston Sports Journal) ($$)

Perhaps Christian Vazquez isn’t the right catcher to help the Red Sox’s ace get back to normal. (Jacob Camenker; NBC Sports Boston)

Sale can’t do it alone, of course, so the Sox could look outside the current roster. (Jen McCaffrey; The Athletic) ($$)

More success at the plate from Andrew Benintendi would be a major help as well. (Julian Benbow; Boston Globe)
