Boston Red Sox: Grading the Team Through the 1st Quarter of the Season

With three quarters of the 2013 season yet to be played, it is a good time to give the Boston Red Sox marks on their players' performances over the first quarter of the year.

Boston has ridden a roller coaster over the season's first 39 games. They ascended to the top of the American League with a 20-8 start, before quickly plummeting to a more pedestrian 22-17 record, courtesy of a 2-9 slump over the next 11 games.

The successes and failures of this team can be credited to the key players. Some guys have elevated their games to help with the ascent, while others have assisted more with the tumbling.

When it comes to doling out grades, players are rated based on both performance and expectation. If a guy grossly outperforms his projections, that kind of over-achievement deserves consideration in his grade.

Conversely, if a star player posts mediocre numbers, the disappointment will also bear out in his grading.
