Not to mention that the only team in the division the Sox haven't won a series against is the over-.500 team, and the Sox did win three of four against the last-place Cubs.
The Sox lost two of three in Houston, but the Astros started a seven-game winning streak not long after that series. They have lost two games to each of the bottom three teams in the NL West, but I think Sox fans underestimate how tough the competition is in the NL West. (With seven more interleague games, three in LA and four against the Giants, I don't expect the Sox to have a winning interleague record this season.)
Fans remember the wins against above-.500 teams because the wins surprised them. They remember the loses against below-.500 teams because the losses surprised them.
