and only 158 more games to go.

1998 Yankees started off 0-3 and 1-4 in their first 5 games only to win 125 games and a World Championship....just saying.

Can't explain it but too early to worry (much).

Moving Carl Crawford to the 7 hole makes no sense to me. Sounds like a knee jerk reaction. Never been a fan of Terry Francona though.

yeah I know that. they'll probably get it together, I just personally think it's funny how much hype they got and how much trash red sox fans talked before the season.

I'm sorry but I just can't see their pitching staff taking them very far. I think the Jays/Yankees battle for #1/#2, and Orioles/Sox battle for #3/#4 in the AL East.

I could be completely wrong and their bats could break out(they will, too much talent on offense to stay like this), but even then their pitching just isn't that impressive.

Looks like their pitching staff finally woke up. Don't know what happened with Dice K but that guy is playing lights out at the moment.

What is up with Carl Crawford by the way? Batting .135 at the moment...

On this board?

Not sure I agree, though, that the Sox are fighting it out for 4th place in the AL East in 4 months... Not with 3 legitimate CY candidates (providing Beckett continues to pitch like he did 2 years ago, and not like he did last year)... I don't see the holes in the rotation you do, regardless of their subpar start...

    • This makes sense to a degree with one big BUT... It's clear we'll be changing up our offense quite a bit this season - both due to the need for "evolution" and because of all the new players on offense we have to integrate - especially CMC & Samuel.  So, Stew needs more reps than he would have needed last year just to get in a rhythm with the new guys... Otherwise what you write makes sense. 
    • Already admitted i was wrong saying that, what I meant to write was he never learned to do it in college and makes it much easier to fall back into old habits in the pros. Was going back and edit that before I posted the thread and just forgot. And yes, every QB is going to be inaccurate at times, Cam is more inaccurate than the other top ten QBs, He just is, that's not his game,  didn't see anyone complaining about in 15. He makes up for it in other ways. And, no offense meant, didn't see a whole lot of Cam blaming in your post, actually, didn't see any. It was all someone else's fault. Cam has more difficult throws than many QBs because he frequently passes up easy throws for more difficult ones.
