The Sox have lived and died by the Homerun for quite a while, and to me, that's a trademark of the Kenny Williams regime.. and the downfall of the team, 2009-2012.
Let's take it one step further with the home run if Kenny wants to study it.
The Sox didn't have a great April and had a terrible September. Aren't those the coldest months to play baseball?
Teams that rely on the home run don't hit as many when it's cooler. Seems pretty obvious to me.
