it kind of was, considering the talent that was either on the dl or playing through injuries.

while the red sox scored runs, they lost a lot of defensive value with ellsbury and crawford being out, which could have propped up the rotation.

lackey and matsuzaka missed time. that's what, 300+ innings of at least slightly above average pitching that was filled in by aaron cook and franklin morales.

like i said, i appreciate that the blue jays lost talent to injury. but they certainly didn't lose the extent of talent that the red sox did. having a manager with slight retardation didn't help the red sox at all but neither did losing above average players at pretty much every premier offensive position and losing all of the depth in the rotation and bullpen.
