I think this has been largely the function of Cooper and Herm being the best at their jobs. But I also think the Sox generally have had good luck, but that luck may have turned somewhat, considering the somewhat freakish injuries to Peavy, Danks, and now Floyd, during the past few years. Nevertheless, I don't hold those injuries against Cooper and Herm.
