Red Sox Lack Home Runs, But Not Power

The Red Sox have a good offense. That much is evident. You can simply look at the 126 runs they’ve scored through 24 games (a 5.25 run per game clip) to see the production.

BOSTON — There were plenty of questions about the Red Sox’s rotation behind David Price going into the 2016 season, but overall, things have been better than expected.
