YFSF is one of several participants in a weekly roundtable survey at Firebrand of the American League, one of the better Sox blogs out there.
This week’s question — "What is the Red Sox’ biggest weakness — produced no unanimity, which I think speaks to the most vexing part about this team. The numbers are there, the wins are largely there, but I don’t think anyone has the confidence in this club that we had last year heading into October.
Here is a summary of the answers to that question:
- Inability to put the game away.
- Mike Lowell’s health
- Injuries and fatigue
- Inconsistency on the road/bullpen
Well, it’s gotta be one of those, right? What say you, SFs?
