By now you proably heard that Sox GM Kenny Williams called them that. Is it true? To see if it is, I compared how individual players and pitchers are doing to what they were projected to do by Bill James in this year's Handbook.
The fist table has OPS and predictd OPS for all the guys who have 200+ ABs on the Sox this year. Some guys did not get projections. Overall it does not look too bad. Some guys are doing better than expected, some worse. I calculated the average differential at a negative -.010. Not huge.
Now pitchers and their ERAs. Things don't look too bad here, either. There is one more table after this that uses WHIP per 9 IP.
Now the WHIP table. Does not look so terrible.
