Reed's not all that great but so what?
Craig Kimbrel's WAR is a 3.3 and Reed's is a 1.2. Use whatever metric you want. Divine pig entrails for all I care. The Sox were not a good team and no matter how much you think 70 wins is preferable to 63 it doesn't really matter come October. Put a team on the field worth 95 wins then start to worry about who's hammering down the 9th.
