  1. Oh look, another article fellating the Sox. Why doesn’t fangraphs write articles on the true Beast of the East, my beloved Toronto Blue Jays.

  4. This the real everdiso checking in for duty, that’s my adorable imposter above.

    As the real everdiso, though, I have to say my imposter here is right on point. Good job, imposter!

    This article is the latest in fangraphs’ scintillating series: “In-depth Profiles of Borderline MLBers on the Bestest Sub-.500 5th-Place Team There Ever Was”.

    We’ve done Clay Mortensen, Mark Prior, Dice-K, Daniel Bard and now Andrew Miller so far. I can’t wait for the next installment. Who’s it gonna be? Aaron Cook? Doug Mathis? Scott Podsednik?

  6. Exhibit #590 on why giving up significant assets for relievers not named Mariano Rivera is dumb.

  7. Rich Hill prior to his recent injury was pulling an Andrew miller act out there.

  8. What Sox pitchers, starters and relievers, lack is reliability. It’s true that a larger sample size will lead to regression to the mean — but that assumes there is a mean. Boston fans have been watching Josh Beckett for five-and-a-half years, and still have no idea what to expect.

  9. Successfull relief pitchers are otherwise marginal pitchers who found new life in the bullpen, and better stuff during their inning or two. There is a good lesson here, but the Red Sox refuse to take the plunge. Put everybody in the bullpen. All their strarters are marginal, and no team has ever had less to lose. Seven innings has been considered a complete game there for several years.

    Carry an extra pitcher. 13 arms, 54 innings a week, occasionally 63–four or five innings a week. Oh, the humanity. Maybe the fans won’t have to watch them four runs down in the fifth so often, and it will give Valentine something to do besides looking for silver linings.
