My OP said that, if the Sox go 6-3 on the road trip, they will lose two games in Pittsburgh, three in Philly, and one in Houston. Yes, the road trip is only two games so far, but predicting losing two to Pittsburgh is right on target--providing, of course, the Pirates don't sweep the Sox.

Better check UR math, Max. I think you mean a 3-6 road trip.
This thread isn't about short term projections.
We'll leave that to you soothsayers.
It's about a long-term realistic view. And the issues presently confronting the team had been discussed at length on this thread.
If you wanna play the long odds, the Redsox are historically very successful
vs. the N.L. teams. Sooner or later, circumstances will reveal a short-term reversal.
It's not prophetically earth-shattering. And the team has a tendency to come up short rising to expectation, but then surprises against better competition.
Since CRAWBURY has been at half strength, the team is 2-4. And with all the talk about the line-up, all teams lose the majority of the time when giving up 6 runs in a given game.
