For most of the season, you might have been able to make the argument that were he given any run support, Rick Porcello's W-L numbers would look a lot different.

Sure, he was giving up home runs at an alarming rate, but he was consistently pitching into the sixth and seventh innings, and while his ERA was on the high side, Porcello was generally keeping the Red Sox in games.
Friday night, he committed a first-inning error that led to a pair of unearned runs and then watched as things went completely downhill in a 16-3 loss to the Orioles at Fenway Park.
Porcello was tagged for eleven runs (four earned because the entire team forgot how to play defense) on nine hits and a walk over 4.2 innings.
Boston made five errors in one of the ugliest performances of the season.

Yeah, I used to be that guy on WNEW-FM. No, I never worked at WPLJ (honest).
I support my family by doing two things in life I truly love - baseball (PBI) and radio (WDHA).
