In response to notin's comment:
So what djbosox is saying is that we should pay attention to the recent 8 game sample size and ignore the 116 game outlier sample...
“Listen to the mustn'ts, child. Listen to the don'ts. Listen to the shouldn'ts, the impossibles, the won'ts. Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me. Anything can happen, child. Anything can be.”
No, what i`m saying is that in the first half or so of the season, most of the breaks and what could go right did go right for the Sox. The problem is that things have a way of evening themselves out. No moves to improve and a pathetic brand of baseball in recent games is really just bringing out what this team really is. A clubhouse of "fun" guys that are an average team.
They have been the most consistent team in baseball. The only team to not have lost as much as 4 games in a row all year. Thats the kind of tema that has a good chance of winning it all.
They got a front line starter in kjake Peavy and already had one of the best offenses in MLB, and with nothing on the market that really fit the team, they stood pat on the offensive side, which I have no issue with.
You can have a bunch of very good players that make up a great team, or you could have a clubhouse of great names that are not a great team (2012).
They are still 25-18 in the 2nd half of the season.
