Colorado has a better batting average. We are better than the Sox in almost every category. We also have more hits, triples, and HRs, so I guess we're actually a better "long ball" team. Remember that tie breaker game? The one where the Padres started Peavy? You know, the guy who leads the MLB in strikeouts and has the best ERA? We also faced Hoffman, statistically the best closer in the game's history. We beat them. Point being, no pitching rotation is invincible compared to Colorado's offence. Don't get cocky.
