San Diego's bullpen is its strength. You don't want to be trailing these guys after six innings. They are tough to rally against.
The Sox are an up-and-down team. They haven't won more than four in a row all season, nor have they lost more than four in a row at any point. They have played well enough to avoid long losing streaks, but they have too many warts to sustain a long winning streak.
Right now, the team isn't hitting much. In their last seven games, they've scored three runs or less six times. Fortunately, they've got a 2-1 win and a 3-2 win mixed in there, so this little offensive funk hasn't hurt too much. They are still winning about half their games.
