Red Sox 2015 Engine Has Faulty "Differential"

Vito: Expert On Differentials
Thank goodness for the Philadelphia Phillies, Colorado Rockies, Millwaukee Brewers, and Chicago White Sox. Those are the only teams in baseball with a worse run differential than your 2015 Carmine Hose. At a differential of minus 32, Boston's 'vaunted' offense has not been able to overcome the team's horrific pitching (5.05 ERA—second worst in MLB). Increasingly, the question is, "Will getting Cole Hamels be enough?" Many pundits believe that the Red Sox are more than one major move away from contention—despite the general parity in the AL East. With each new loss, the chances of this team making the post-season slip—almost imperceptibly—further and further away. Sure it's still "early", but as 90-year-old sage Yogi Berra once said, "It gets late early out there." Mona Lisa Vito could not be reached for comment.
