"Defy what they were expected to be... and defy what they actually are". What were the projected wins for the Red Sox in 2013 and 2014? Aren't the two years one example of a team getting good or lucky performances almost across the board, and then getting bad/unlucky performances the next year? In other words, the Red Sox had a bad year, but they weren't projected to be a bad team. As lucky as they were in 2013, they were that unlucky the next year.

Your line "he treats lefties like new fish in prison" was worth at least 5 Mookies.

Prof Parks, you mention the speed a few times in the article but that seems to be the one tool you're still overlooking a bit in the overall package. Betts is 69 for 80 in steal attempts in the minors. So the full package to dream on is a .300+ hitter with good D, unexpected pop, and 30-40 stolen bases a year. A potential monster... if they can figure out where to play him.

I'm also curious about Luis Diaz. He had the best numbers in the system over the second half of the season. Is he considered a prospect to watch or are the numbers better than the projection?
