Boston's .357 overall OBP is eight points higher than Seattle's team leader. They've won 13 consecutive games at home against teams with a weighted winning percentage of .510, and this weekend they get three against arguably the worst team in baseball, a team that will be starting a 22 year old disappointment and a pair of throwaway stiffs. Even without David Ortiz and Jacoby Ellsbury (tonight), the carnage potential here is through the roof. On the one hand, winning in Boston is a great way to make everyone feel better, but on the other, continued losing in this context is a great way to make sure several names don't survive the month, and with Boston and Toronto coming up next, things don't look good. For better or worse, John McLaren should probably consider himself lucky if he makes it to the Washington/Florida homestand.
