  • It means the Red Sox have 13 more wins in the bank this season.

  • It means the Yankees are sucky choke-artists. Their pythag W-L record is 17-20.

  • If they’re so outperforming their pythag, surely it means the opposite of “choking.”

  • Yeah Mark, that statement was tongue-in-cheek considering the walk-off weekend they just had ;-)

  • Until we beat the Sox, they are the better team. Period.

  • It suggests the Sox may be in trouble, since Boston has a lot more games against teams that are not named the Yankees than ones that are.

  • I think Hudson is right, but I will add, just for argument’s sake, that if the Sox go 18-0 against the Yankees and .500 against everyone else, they’d still be 90-win team.

  • I say it means absolutely nothing. Statistical noise. The Red Sox are likely to do better against non-Yankee teams in the future and worse against the Yankees.
