    Well, the team's leader will be Lester so in fairness, the stat is skewed when Lackey/Lester are getting traded in the FireSale.

    Understood, but only in a horrible season would a team trade their top two leaders in WINS so it kind of goes with the narrative.

    .....Daniel Nava is your hottest hitter other than Ortiz, but has season stats that are mystifying. He has not hit a HR in his last 200 plate appearances yet since June 4, his average has nearly doubled from .136 to .264, and in all of that time he has only driven in 19 RBI all season in 250 plate appearances.

    Re: You know you are having a bad season when....?

    Nava has been my whipping boy all season, but as a hitter you got to give him credit for coming from the dead to raise his average .128 points over the course of 2-1/2 months. That's pretty hard to do.

    Re: You know you are having a bad season when....?

    How Nava has been used has also obviously helped his average...no more Right-handed hitting. Staying exclusively lefty and being used primarily v. right-handed pitchers has been a godsend for him as a batter. Nothing wrong with that, but if he was facing lefties and he was batting right-handed I don't think he would have raised his average the way he has.

    When you still watch the games, but with trepidation and pain.  This is unfortunate because 2013 was such a great year and should make this year palatable.

    Re: You know you are having a bad season when....?

    max, I was first following yesterday's game on radio, came home and watched Ortiz hit his bomb...then this crept into my mind "watch, the Angels will rally because of Richards injury and the Sox will just do nothing v. the relievers from this point on." Sure enough that's exactly what happened. Typical of Sox to lay down and die after a good start to a game.

    If the Angels sweep, and it may be one of the most predictable sweeps of the year, I will just shrug my shoulders and think this is what happens when you pretend everything is okay after you lose a CF, SS, and C from a WS champion.

    Re: You know you are having a bad season when....?

    Brock Holt, the sensation, has just 3 HR, 27 RBI and 30 extra-base hits this year in 423 plate appearances...and he's the guy being praised. If this were another year, people would say what exactly does this kid have to offer other than that he can play a ton of positions....I'm not saying this to dump on him, I like the kid, and I hope he get a utility spot next year, but let's come down a bit on how great he has been for Sox. If anything, he's part of the problem, just another tableset guy with little to no power and little to no RISP hitting.
