PawSox, BoSox both in dire need of offense

May 26, 2014

PAWTUCKET – The PawSox offense is abysmal this season, ranking as one of the most futile in the International League.

That is not exactly “stop the presses material” to anyone who has watched this team up close. They’ve seen plenty of 3-2 victories and 4-1 defeats. The PawSox bused back to Rhode Island in the wee hours Monday morning possessors of a seven-game losing streak, a dubious mark that has seen them bat .212 over that span. The weekend in Syracuse saw the locals go 23 innings without scoring a single run.

PAWTUCKET – For Travis Shaw, the process of getting out of Double-A Portland began in earnest at last year’s Arizona Fall League.

“Last year was a fluke, that wasn’t me. I got so far away from my approach,” stated the 23-year-old Shaw prior to making his Triple-A debut with the PawSox Monday night.

The first baseman was referencing his 2013 numbers with the Sea Dogs, ones that consisted of a high strikeout total (117 whiffs in 444 at-bats), low batting average (.221 in 127 games) and a career low on-base percentage (.342).
