After stumbling out of the gate to a 4-9 start, the Red Sox (46-31) have turned their season around and are right in the thick of the AL East hunt, two games behind the first-place Yankees (47-28), exactly where we all should have expected them to be.

Lupica, as you’d expect, didn’t do any real analysis, just drawing parallels between the two players’ size and grittiness, so I pulled up the trusty Baseball Cube to try to see if there could possibly [...]
