    Offensive Juggernaught

    The slow start with the bats seems like ancient history now.

    The Red Sox are  now:
    Runs: 2nd with 243 (Yankees 250)
    Doubles: 2nd with 101 (Royals 102)
    Home Runs: 2nd tied with 53 (Yankees 75)
    BA: 1st with .270 (Indians .262)
    SLG: 2nd with .430 (Yankees .449)
    OPS: 2nd .774 (Yankees .785)

    The best part is that the Red Sox have the best offense in the AL because there are some players yet to even break out (i.e. Crawford who's starting to and Pedroia)

    I think these last few days are what we can expect to see when Crawford gets going and everyone else is in sync...

    Scoring 28 runs in 2 games is great.  Personally I'm just as impressed by only giving up 3 runs in those games.

    I think we found the right place for Mr. Crawford.  8 for 9 in the #6 slot so far.

    There will be some more down streaks before the year is over, but this team has a great offense.

    Most of the serious and knowledgeable Baseball fans knew this team was too talented to not perform like they are now..the scary thing is, not all of them are hitting the way they have in the past and are capable of...HFX; I too am very impressed with the pitching which has been slightly overshadowed by the offensive explosion..only 3 runs, and Aceves pitching one of those games...do we have our #5?

    I'm extremely impressed, but they are by no means the only team whose offense is not quite running on all cylinders yet. It's also fair to say, it's very rare to have all 8 or 9 batters in synch. Someone is always slumping.

    We knew the offense would be good, and if we can get even league average performance out of the 4 & 5 spot in the rotation this team should win the division by a handful of games.

    It's great to see the bats come alive like the last couple of days. Hopefully this means that Crawford is out of his funk.

    As already mentioned, Aceves has come up big in his last couple of starts. He looks like a good number five or maybe four, depending on how Lackey looks when he comes back.

    Wakefield came up big his last start, let's see what he gives us today.

    If they had the best offense in the AL wouldn't they have the most runs scored?

    Especially since they have played 2 more games than the team that actually does have the best offense in the AL.

    Sour grapes, huh? How've the Yanks done against the Sox?  Because that's a much more true comparison of these offenses than what they do against other teams.  You get to watch another 13 games of the Sox owning your team this year.  Get used to it for this season.  The Yanks might have the best offense in the game, but not against the Sox' pitching.  Maybe you haven't been watching.
    Sox have also had a rain out.  That actually benefits the Yanks.

    Sour grapes about what? Being in first place and having the best offense?

    It's only been 6 games between the two. Remember that you guys won the first 8 in '09? How'd that work out?

    And maybe you haven't been watching, but the Yanks have had 3 rainouts, but I don't know exactly what that has to do with this conversation.

    Congratulations, yazzer.  That's your first (and only) good post with your current name.  Probably your only good post in all your incarnations.  You should quit while you're ahead.

    theres probably a little more to it than that(runs scored), but i would think being in the top 3 in runs scored would be a prerequisite..

    Last I checked the goal of the offense is to score runs, maybe I'm missing something.

    How do you measure the offense, by how many runs the pitchers allow?

    Im just saying there is more than one way to judge the best offense..YES, runs scored is one way. so, Im agreeing with you..

    Sorry southpaw, but you're on the wrong side of this argument. The most important stat in measuring how good a teams offense is is runs scored. That's it. Period. The Yankees have been very good hitting homeruns when playing at Yankee stadium.

    One way? What's the other, stolen bases? Unearned runs?

    OK one more time..Im agreeing with him..YES runs scored is the most important stat..But its not the only one..team OBP or OPS is in there somewhere i imagine when defining the best offense...that is all im saying..easy guys...Im not saying your wrong...I think runs scored is not the ONLY way to judge an offense. Its the best, not the only thing though..

    And you might want to remember that the Yanks have played 2 less games.

    Ummm...aren't they every year?
