OK, because I was fortunate enough to wake, bake, and sate with a cruller this morning, I'm willing to go a bit nuts with a the following prediction....
The Red Sox will remain at .500 until they leave .500.
Meanwhile, if your anecdotal observations had you thinking the Red Sox score lots of runs when they don't need them and not enough runs when they do need them, well, the stats bear this out.
Pinto calls those "story" stats.
And the story on the 2012 Red Sox is that they are boring.
They are 50 Shades of Gray without the sex.
They are opening a gift and finding anothah friggin scarf from John Henry.
