    Interesting stat

    We all think of Fenway as hitter-friendly.  I certainly do.  espn.com has a stat called "park factor," which compares how well the home team does at home vs on the road, and right now Fenway puts the Sox at 23d best on their home field.  Well, of course, you say.  Any dummy could have predicted that.


    But here's the grabber.  Last year the Sox led MLB in OPS and runs scored, but Fenway Park was ranked just 20th in MLB in favoring the home team.

    I'm not sure what any of this  tells us

    without considering several other factors including the sox pitching

     but fenway has always been known as a doubles park

    and it appears nothing has changed
