The Red Sox have won all three of their series 2-1 and are on pace to score just over 1,000 runs this year without the offense firing on all cylinders as yet. But Masterson had nothing last start, Miley just got pounded, and Buchholz was awful on Sunday. Kelly hasn’t had a second start yet, either. The Red Sox also owe at least a couple of their victories in part to the opposing defense playing like sh*t. I would put good odds on them to lead the AL East in runs scored AND allowed. With only Porcello appearing to be reliable (and I would have said this even before the season started), I’m not so sure they can keep this up.
Of course, scoring 1,000 runs would certainly help.
