On Baseball-Reference's front page, there's a stat called "SRS," which is how many runs above or below average each team is, based on run differential and strength of schedule. The Red Sox are at -0.9, the Yankees at -1.0. The Sox have looked terrible, but they've been pretty unlucky, too, while playing four of their seven games against very good teams.
At any rate, the task now turns to keeping this new streak alive, and the Sox turn to Clay Buchholz, who hopes to follow Jon Lester's lead and recapture his 2010 magic against Ivan Nova. If you're around on a Saturday afternoon, you can comment on all the action here.
