5 games into the season, that is our team slash line. Our on base percentage is higher than our slugging percentage.

I'm as pessimistic as the next guy after the first 5 games, but with that said, I think we can all agree that the offensive (pun intended) numbers won't stay that bad all year. Anyone really think the Sox will hit sub-.190 all year? I doubt it.

Now, how much will they improve is going to make all the difference. I think if they can average even 4 runs a game they'll finish above .500 with this staff.

...and 5 games into the season and we've already dug ourselves a 3.5 game hole behind the Twins.

If they don't get their act together soon, we'll be left in the dust before the tulips are done blooming.

If the numbers were unbelievably high, people would point out that you are looking at a very small sample size.

For Sunday's game, the line was .290/.333/.645.

...and they have still scored more runs than their opponents.

While I think we can all agree these guys aren't going to lead the league in these categories, it's tough to draw too many conclusions from 5 games. Rios is 174/269/391 but looks good at the plate and has hit the ball hard in over half of his AB's. As a team, the Sox have struck out less than anyone else in the league, which is a good sign when balls start dropping.

The Sox pitching staff is also top 3 in the league in most categories, and opponents are at a 238/328/305.

I'd rather have the pitching be our strength, obviously, because the hitting will come around. But it will be very interesting to see how we wind up looking back on this off-season after it all plays out. Imagine if Thome's ball is six feet higher today... it seems silly to say this so early, but I really wonder if this team could have survived that happening.
