Math is hard, I guess...

Something is not right with Tom Verducci's math...
When opponents threw no more than 140 pitches in a game against Boston, they went 27-16. But when they needed more, they were just 50-49 against the relentless Red Sox.
So Red Sox opponents were 27-16 + 50-40, or 79-56 against Boston this year. That's quite a trick for the opponents of a 97-65 team to pull off. So the Red Sox were only 16-27 when seeing 140 or fewer pitches, and only 49-50 when seeing more?

This might have benefited from a little tighter editing...
