It meant something because when the Sox weren't hitting home runs they were finding ways to get runs across anyway and bunting and infield hits, stolen bases and sac flys was part of that.
The best pitching in history doesn't win you anything if you can't score runs...the Sox could beat you in 2005 with a blast, a bloop or a bunt...so yes it does mean something.
Balance. (Compared to say this year's team...)
