Last year the Sox played 500 ball for stretches than would go on a few long winning streaks. The only exception was their nerve-wracking 7 game losing streak in August.
This year's team seems to be following a similar pattern. The main reason the Sox are able to still put up W's during the bad streaks is their depth in the starting rotation. It's just not likely that all five pitchers will start slumping at the same time.
So far the Sox have only played less than 500 ball three times through the rotation. They have yet to lose all five games in one rotation.
On the winning side, the Sox have posted two perfect turns through the rotation and three 4-1 records. Rotation 15 has gotten off to a 2-0 start as the Sox try to win 8 straight games for the seventh time in the last two years tonight against the Astros.
