Dalton Jones Average Jumps 11.3

FenwayNation's Dalton Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) experienced a sharp increase in May—rising 11.3 points to 100.6. The big jump in the Index was fueled by a 21.2 point rise in confidence with the team's offense. Confidence in relief pitching dropped 1.2 points—the second straight monthly decline in that department. Starting pitching confidence rose a full 8.6 points, while confidence with the Sox defense increased 6.5 points.

The DJIA composite index is made up of confidence readings for four key metrics: starting pitching, relief pitching, overall offense and overall defense. You can see the scores for each of the metrics HERE.
