If the 2005 pitching staff's perfformance was the same performance the Sox pitchers would have given from 2006 until now, there would have been several more playoff appearances. Saying they didn't rely on homers as much in 2005 is not accurate. They hit over 200 of them and scored via the homer as high of percentage as any other year.Take the WS. Game 1 homers by Dye and Crede. Game 2 homers by Konerko and Pods, game 3 homer by Blum. Game 4, score 1 run and win. That team scored 1 run and won at least 3 times. I really can't understand what some people have against home runs. If the Sox don't hit at least 200 of them, they usually lose more games than they win.
