It is questionable how important it is for judging pitchers, but for a team, I argue it is relevant. More relevant is runs allowed per game, which I think the Sox place 4th or 5th in the majors in, so same difference here.

I haven't "given up" in the sense that "anything is possible." I just hate the makeup of this team and the franchise's insistence on this treading water/barely able to "compete" in the division approach. A team underperforming with talent (Tigers) is different than a team with glaring holes (not that the Tigers are perfect) that are already showing themselves.
