So, when next week rolls around, what will the Red Sox' rotation look like?

Sunday allowed for more questions than answers.



Is David Ortiz really 33?

The struggles of the Red Sox' designated hitter have been so pronounced that it has not been merely the slugger’s abilities that have been doubted, but instead his very identity.


This was not the same Jon Lester who threw a no-hitter against the Kansas City Royals last May. This was someone better. 



Had the Red Sox known what kind of game Brad Penny would have pitched, Julio Lugo would not have been the starting shortstop on Friday.



The questions regarding David Ortiz' eyes came fast and furious, with many of the answers emerging as Friday progressed.



The footsteps are growing louder.



At the end of last week, it had the makings of a flop. The Red Sox had lost four of their first six contests during their three-city, 10-game road-trip, in the process moving from a first-place tie to a 1.5 game deficit in the division.



It was the sixth inning and Josh Beckett had just thrown one of his no-hit pitches.
 



It was prior to one of the weekend games in Toronto and Terry Francona still hadn't tasted his 500th career win as the manager of the Boston Red Sox.
 



Until Daisuke Matsuzaka wins a game, or at least levels out the rest of his numbers, his critics will constantly be looking back.
