The Red Sox are just barely hanging on at this point in the year already, and they probably would not even be this hopeful without Mitch Moreland. (John Tomase; NBC Sports Boston)

Moreland was obviously the hero on Sunday, and Ron Roenicke also deserves some credit for sticking with his first baseman against a lefty before his walk-off. (Matt Vatour; Masslive)

Generally speaking, though, the offense has not been what was expected, and it’s not just the players feeling the heat. (Julian McWilliams; Boston Globe)

Even with how bad this start has been overall, the manager isn’t who should be blamed. (Rob Bradford; WEEI)

For as bad as the offense has been, though, it’s not quite as bad as you might think. (Chad Jennings; The Athletic)

The good news for the big bats that are struggling: Rafael Devers may have broken out of it on Sunday. (Jason Mastrodonat; Boston Herald)
