"They stranded runners in scoring position in each of the final four innings, and looked increasingly graceless while doing so."
After another frustrating loss last night, I decided to check out where we stood overall with RISP. I was only able to go back to 2002 using Yahoo Sports.
We all know you cant win with out scoring a run or two or three or twelve, and the easiest way to accomplish this is when the table is already set, but how much does it really tell us!?! I mean look the history...1 playoff appearance any time they finished in the top 10 since 2002 and when the Sox where in the bottom 3rd of overall RISP Standings they won a WS and have finished a very infuriating but somewhat respectable 3rd last year, and a forget about it 2007...
