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...)

The problem with this years offense isn't balance. They aren't really doing anything well at all. Sure they are 4th in the league in HR, but they are one bad game away from being 7th.

Do you think combining 2006 offense with the 2005 pitching results in a better or worse team than either team alone?
