Yes, there have been injuries to a lot of key players, but when you can't depend on your number 1 and number 2 pitchers, you're pretty much stuck. Lester seems frustrated, but all he can come up with is "executing pitches" and "fixing mechanics." Beckett, on the other hand, was seen closing a Boston bar a day and a half before his last disastrous start.
Somehow, the Red Sox aren't in last place, and they are only 5.5 games out of the Wild Card, thanks to the new format. But it's safe to say that if Lester and Beckett can't win some games there won't be any October baseball around these parts.
