Yesterday, the Rays dropped their sixth game in a row, losing to the Red Sox, 4-0. The team is last in the AL East.
Well, whoever is running the team’s official Twitter account wants us to know that they are aware they have some areas that they need to work on:
This will mark the 27th time a #Rays starter has gone 5 innings or less this season, most in the majors.

Erik Bedard was yesterday’s starting pitcher. He was pulled after 4.2 innings, allowing five hits and three earned runs. Ouch. On the bright side, at least none of them were home runs?
The Rays rank 23rd in Team ERA and dead last in quality starts. The (potential) good news is that there is nowhere for the team to go but up.
