The standard line on the Sox in the decades leading up to 2004 was that they had the bats but not the arms. That trend appears to have come around again, as the Sox have the worst starters’ ERA on the young season in the AL and have scored the second-most runs per game in the AL (behind KC).
Still, perhaps today’s starter will improve his stock. Wade Miley was destroyed last time against the Nationals. Today, he takes on Archer at the Maddonless Trop as the Sox look to keep not losing series.
