Extra Bases

This team needs more offense

That was the refrain all winter. Let’s take a look:

Home runs
Blue Jays 43
Diamondbacks 40
Red Sox 39

Doubles
Blue Jays 80
Tigers 76
Red Sox 68

OPS
Yankees .822
Diamondbacks .814
Red Sox .812

Slugging
Diamondbacks .467
Red Sox .464

Those pesky facts. Still the Sox are only ninth in runs scored. But that is a product of poor situational hitting early in the season and we’re starting to see that even out now. By the All-Star break, the guess here is they’ll be top four or five.

Jason Bay is hitting .238 with one (1) home run in the National League, by the way. He has struck out 33 times in 101 at-bats.
