First off, Red Sox don’t look so good

NEW YORK — Worst to first? How about first to worst? The “turn-the-page” Red Sox at times this year look like they’ve turned the page all the way back to 2012. This is Bobby V Ball we’re seeing right now with Jonathan Herrera starring as Pedro Ciriaco.

The Yankees hit five homers and waxed the Red Sox, 7-4, at the House of Steinbrenner Saturday. The Sox have lost six of nine, fell to 5-7 overall and had a chance to wake up in last place in the American League East Sunday if the Orioles won Saturday night. The Red Sox were never under .500 in 2013.
