Red Sox excitement

With the Boston Red Sox at 9-4, there are a lot of things to be excited about. Of course, its just April, so we shouldn't get too excited. But I've been looking at their record so far and something jumps out.

Of their first 9 wins, 5 of those have been 1 run games. Winning those 1 run games comes from several things, but most important is the bullpen and defense. If the bullpen can't hold a lead, it doesn't matter how well you hit. The Red Sox have already seen the off season investment in their pitching and defense.

Oh, two home runs by Ortiz and a walk off home run by Loretta doesn't hurt, either.
