Look at the Red Sox’ Strength of Schedule When Evaluating Their Performance

Tonight's 11-9 loss to the Yankees isn't really out of the realm of possibility, is it?  The Red Sox have played the sixth-toughest MLB schedule to date (per Baseball Reference), and the game's momentum tonight kept on oscillating between both teams.  The Sox' current record is understandable — not great, not ideal, but understandable for a team playing one of the toughest schedules in baseball without Jacoby, without Mike Cameron, and without the reliable starting pitching of last year.  This is one loss in 162 games, it's understandable, and it's just one little game which will get evened out over the season by a Red Sox comeback in late innings.
