I feel this is evidenced by the immediate "no respect" attitude. It is far from a question of respect. In fact, respect has basically nothing to do with it.
You might be right, but most of us would have no doubt their methodology was a joke. I question it because it seems the Sox are always doing better than their BP projecion. Last year they were projected to lose nearly a hundred games. I looked at the roster and I couldn't fathom why that would be, they had good pitching. When's it's off that badly every year I have no choice but the question it's validity.
