With black holes at catcher, DH and shortstop for two-thirds of last year, the Sox still managed to be third in the American League in runs scored hitting a 270/352/454 line. The huge year-over-year upgrade from having Victor Martinez for a full season and Marco Scutaro replacing a terrible threesome at short essentially makes up for Jason Bay going to the dysfunctional and unhealthy Mets.

If you subtract the ineptitude at SS, C as well as Bay, Lowell and Victor as a Red Sox player from the team totals and add in the 2009 stats from Victor, 50% of Tek plus the three new additions, then the team line would be 272/354/444. The local nine’s power would drop along with runs scored, but the Sox will still average about five runs per game. We are not going to be watching many 1-0 and 2-1 games.
