      Actually, we are both forgetting the most important step in why children are legally hittable and by whom.

      he almost stops being a threat altogether because the pitcher knows there's nearly a 2-in-3 chance that Dunn won't even make contact. There's no incentive to throw him an even remotely hittable pitch.

      Just because the Sox were able to hit the Angels pen doesn't make all pitchers hittable. Overconfidence is a bad thing right now. The Sox do have the best offense out there. BUt that doesn't make the good pitching hittable automatically.
