I already did. 767 runs scored, 676 against.
Based on last season's AL numbers, that would rank the Sox #3 in runs scored and tied for 6th in run prevention.
IF what you say comes to pass, then I'd say the Sox will be competitive. Not necessarily outstanding, but those numbers should mean they'll be playing in meaningful games later in the season.
I'll take competitive.....for now.
Hey Chris, good to see you here man.
Indeed it is Happy New Year my man!
I think competitive is the operative word for the team in the next 2 or 3 years while they retool the nucleaus.
Thanks Bean. HNY to you as well. Nice to see you still around here.....and I agree. "Competitive" probably is the operative word. I have no problem with that. While expectations shouldn't be at an all time high, it should be noted that good things can happen to competitive teams.
I've been here with a few of the other old timers. Nice to see you and a few others from the old dem yanks crew droping by lately. Pass along my regards to Vic, Val Pete, Diva & CP, tell em to drop by once in a while...If they can get past the trollish behavior of some. Every now an then a good old fashion baseball discusion florishes. I've been meaning to check in with the crew and have logged on a few times and it's been pretty quiet the few times I've trid...I'm too impatient and like to engage in back and forth debates...
As for our beloved Sox...I agree and again if we all keep the season in its proper perspective. We might actually find enjoyment in watching the Sox play...I'm bullish on the teams makeup, but I also don't have great expectation, that as comprised they'll be a playoff squad either...could happen, just unlikely given the dynamics of the AL East & West where one could argue that in the big pitcure the sox fall somehwere between the A's, Yanks, Jays, Rays, Rangers (edit O's). With the Angels & Tigers looking like the class of the preseason AL power rankings...
