McAdam: Nightmare season continues with lost lead and injury in New York

Remember last April, when everything went right and the Red Sox almost couldn't lose?

That's history now, and this April (and late March, for that matter) are very far removed from that idyllic start. At this point, this isn't a baseball season anymore. It's more like a three-week Murphy's Law come to life.

You name it, and it will go wrong -- or already has -- for the Red Sox.

When they hit, they don't pitch. When they pitch, they don't hit. And then there are games like Wednesday night, where a little bit of everything seems to go wrong. Just when it seemed the Red Sox were starting to get their rotation in order, another critical part of their game came unglued.
