This took forever to find so I hope it's worth it.

Spring 2001 (http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/standings?column=pointsAgainst&year=2001&order=false&br=5&type=reg&group=7&st=1)

There's no era but, the link leads to runs allowed.

Texas was 1st allowing only 103 runs.
Sox were 7th allowing 154 runs.
Minnesota was dead last allowing 177 runs.

And Seattle was second to last and New York was 4th to last. Jeez I think we would have more reason for concern if our pitchers were dominating.

It's interesting to see how Runs allowed were almost flipped last year. It hopefully bodes well for the Sox

Also remember that 7 of the 10 teams in the cactus league have the 7 worse era's in the spring training.

I just got back from there a week ago and the ball just flies off the bats there. The weather is warm and the sky isn't thick so the ball can fly out of there. You also have to remember the balls don't sink or move as well.

I'm kind of worried but I also think if we could add one quality reliever we'd have one of the top pens in baseball and to me thats where we need to be strong having all those young pitchers in the rotation.
