zero the number of people that believe a championship caliber team can be built by pitching and defense alone…. That’s was theo’s genius line about this sox team in spring training
Since Theo and company could not spare the change in their pocket to sign Jason Bay or Mark Teixiera…that’s what the difference between the Sox and the Yanks line-ups up have become…..and currently thats the state of the so-called rivalry as the Yanks have taken 11 out of 12…and 5 out of six at the Fens
