The Sox won this series because the offense came alive starting in game five. The spark was the other rookie – Dustin Pedroia. He settled down; let his quick bat and freakish hand-eye coordination take over at the plate. With DP and Youk both hitting, it gave the rest of the lineup additional outs / chances to drive in runners.

Finally, we could be witnessing the dynamic offense that was projected back in March (less Lugo) – no easy outs, high OBP at the top, speed at the bottom and big boopers in the middle. Hopefully, it will continue because a regular season strength of the club – starting pitching – has become a weakness after Josh Beckett (damn, he really needs a wicked cool nickname). Unless starters numbered two through four find it fast, the offense and pen will need to get it done a few more time for four more wins.


A Josh Beckett v Jeff Francis at Fenway preview is up next.
