Here's a look, position by position, to see if the Sox have been playing above, at, or below the projected level coming into the season. Toward the bottom, I look at what to expect for the rest of the season. All projections and WAR figures from BP. Would like to hear your thoughts:

C - Below: The combo of A.J. and Ross was expected to produce at or above

I always knew that while people touted Buchholz's stuff as elite that he never produced to that level. But didn't realize his FIPs were consistently that high.

The back end of the rotation is a significant problem right now. I think anybody who expected Buchholz to have an ERA under 4.00 was fooling himself, as he has always posted FIP and xFIP around 4.10, lucky in his good seasons and unlucky in his bad ones. This year his strikeout percentage is at a career low, and his line drive percentage is at a career high. Last year he struck out 23% of hitters, but at this point I think there is a long enough track record to accept his fate as a #4 starter capable of pitching in a playoff rotation. Doubtront's strikeouts are also down considerably with a noticeable loss in fastball velocity that is probably a full grade lower on the scouting scale than it was 2 seasons ago when he was throwing in the low 90's. There are enough players in the AL East that mash left handed pitching that I'm growing uncomfortable giving him the ball every 5th day. All the same things can be said about Peavy, a career low strikeout percentage, career high walk percentage, and as much as I enjoy his competitiveness it would be foolish to expect him to be a solid mid rotation starter this year.

I think as long as Peavy stays healthy he should keep getting the ball, and the same should be said about Buchholz and hope he pitches better. But they can't have an innings eater like Doubront in the rotation if they have any aspirations of being competitive to the end of the season.

I don't want to see this team go all-in and bring in guys from outside the organization though. This team looks like they're still hung over from the parade, and the Major League roster isn't currently constructed to support a run of 90 win teams.
