On The Baseball Show, Trenni Kusnierek and Lou Merloni discussed which surprising starts, both positive and negative in the first month of the season for the Red Sox.
Merloni has been impressed by the season of Jake Peavy, especially because expectations weren't extremely high for the 32-year-old.
"I thought he was going to be good this year. I didn't think he'd be this good" said Merloni, "He's had six starts, other than that start against Baltimore where he gave up a ton, he has been outstanding.
He said the Red Sox defense has been a big disappointment in his eyes.
"That's been a huge disappointment, from the very beginning." said Merloni, "Team defense has been killing me… They're just giving up too many runs."
