Madden: Yankees and Red Sox determined their fates in the offseason with these two moves

All season long, the Yankees were perceived as a home run-or-bust team (90-41 when they homered, 10-21 when they did not) that struck out way too much — as opposed to the Red Sox, who led the majors in runs, hits, doubles, on-base pct., OPS and total bases, as a team that put the ball in play and used the whole game, sacrificing, stealing bases, moving runners along etc. etc. Indeed, the Red Sox finished third in the majors with 125 stolen bases (to the Yankees’ 63) and had the 26th fewest strikeouts (1,253) to the Yankees’ ninth most 1,421.
