It's been a horrifically bad month of May for the Red Sox's offense

I originally titled this blog "I'm assuming the Red Sox will score a few runs at some point," but then I noticed Gordon Edes already used a similar headline this morning.  Edes notes that Boston has 12 home runs this month, only two more than the Nationals' Bryce Harper (10) has in that same span.

Here are some more absurd stats:

- The Sox are hitting just .206 in May, the worst in baseball by a large margin (Houston is second from the bottom at .215).

- Among regular starters, Xander Bogaerts is leading the team with a .240 batting average this month.

- They've scored a total of 38 runs over 16 May games--2.38 per contest.

- Boston has plated more than five runs on only one occasion this month (a 6-3 win in Toronto on 5/10).

- On the other hand, the Red Sox have scored two runs or fewer 11 times (in 16 games).  Their remaining five scoring outputs are 6, 5, 5, 4 and 3.  Pathetic.
