It’s early. No team in baseball has played more than four games. The Boston Red Sox have played three games. And already the Red Sox have the slowest pitching staff in the league, at 25.1 seconds between pitches. Runners up: Reds and Tigers, at 24.2 seconds.
Part of this is because the Red Sox were constantly pitching in run-scoring situations. Part of this is because the Red Sox have some damn slow pitchers.
