Red Sox Have The Worst Run Differential In AL

With the recent resurgence of the White Sox, the Red Sox are now the proud owners of the worst run differential in the entire American League (-76). And, they have a 'comfortable' 15-run cushion on their next closest rival—the Seattle Mariners (-61). Of course, they can't compete with the 'leaders' in the Senior Circuit. The woefully horrible Philadelphia Phillies own the top spot in all of baseball with a whopping -144 run differential—almost twice that of your Carmine Hose. Boston is on pace to score just 662 runs in 2015—the second straight season scoring less than 700 runs. The last non-strike year the Red Sox scored fewer than 700 runs was in 1993 (686)—when Butch Hobson guided them to 80 wins. They'll be extremely lucky to win 80 this year.
