Time will tell I guess.
That's what I was thinking . I about fell out when Hawk was bragging up how our bullpen was better than the Nat's, like that matters when you have Dylan Axelrod in your rotation. Sox hardly ever put 2 full good seasons together and it's looking like more of the ol .500 record same this year, if we are lucky. Maybe that baseball predicting machine at Baseball Prospectus or whatever might be right for once in regards to the Sox. I figure in order to have a shot at the playoffs in the AL you need to be lights out at home , like 50-32 or so lights out, and break even on the road, 0-3 is not a good start. I always think the Sox are better than they are because I'm a die-hard but the leaks are obvious earlier than usual to me this year.
