I also thought that was a great article. In this case, stats support what many of us concluded based on observation; since the 2005 season the Sox get solid starting pitching that generally stays healthy. Sabermetric predictions don't factor this into formulae, and we fans may tend to overrate our pitching, which can account for the differences between BP projections and our own prognostications.
The universe is the practical joke of the General at the expense of the Particular, quoth Frater Perdurabo, and laughed. The disciples nearest him wept, seeing the Universal Sorrow. Others laughed, seeing the Universal Joke. Others wept. Others laughed. Others wept because they couldn't see the Joke, and others laughed lest they should be thought not to see the Joke. But though FRATER laughed openly, he wept secretly; and really he neither laughed nor wept. Nor did he mean what he said.
