Can't really argue BD...Imagine if Avisial weren't injured. The future looks bright IMO, at least a hell of a lot brighter than it did nine months ago.

They might have won the Yankee game that the bullpen blew in the 9th but that's about it.

Since the original post, the Sox have won, lost, lost, and won, giving them two more (18 total) different occasions at exactly .500 this season. In addition, they've been within one game of .500 on 26 different occasions, meaning they've been at .500 or within a game of .500 going into 44 of 58 (76%) games so far this season. They've never been more than two games over .500 or three games under .500.

This type of hovering cannot be common. Any thoughts on whether it's anything more than a statistical anomaly or whether there might be more to it? I'd be curious to see how other teams with similar first two months of the season have fared in the remaining four.

We need to see what we have in some of the kids. For example, Eaton is a gamer, a keeper. Marcus, while he has had his spots, has really been non-impressive. Maybe Connor is a keeper at 3rd, maybe Flowers is a keeper at C. These are questions we need to try and answer this year, to try and start contending next year.
If Conor and Flowers can be serviceable next year, then those aren't positions where we need to bring in someone immediately to play. Hopefully we will have Davidson ready if we need him and also get a catcher of the future ready. If we're trading away Dunn and others later, I wouldn't mind eating extra $$$ if catcher is a position we get a good prospect back at.
