This is a topic on SOSH right now and I am curious to hear what people think. It seems that the majority opinion on SOSH is that the staff is overrated. Here is how I see it.
Boston has no #4 starter in Derek Lowe and a shaky #5 in Arroyo. Their 3rd starter is a knuckleballer who has been up and down most of his career, but has pitched very well so far this year. Schilling has been solid. The most shocking thing to me is Pedro has a 4.40 ERA and we are in June. Has he ever had an ERA this high this late in the season?
