An article on the Boston Globe mentioned that the current Red Sox outfield was on pace to be the least productive in the 162 game era, so I decided to investigate this for myself.
First things first, let's take a look at the Lahman database for the BA and OPS (as well as SLG and OBP) for the Red Sox since 1961 (beginning of the 162 game era):
SELECT yearID, teamID, SUM(H) as OF_H, SUM(AB) as OF_AB, SUM(H)/SUM(AB) as OF_BA, (SUM(H)+SUM(BB)+SUM(HBP))/(SUM(AB)+SUM(BB)+SUM(HBP)+SUM(SF)) as OF_OBP, (SUM(H)+SUM(2B)+SUM(2*3B)+SUM(3*HR))/SUM(AB) as OF_SLG, ((SUM(H)+SUM(BB)+SUM(HBP))/(SUM(AB)+SUM(BB)+SUM(HBP)+SUM(SF)) +(SUM(H)+SUM(2B)+SUM(2*3B)+SUM(3*HR))/SUM(AB)) as OF_OPS FROM Batting WHERE teamID = 'BOS' AND yearID >= 1961 AND playerID in (SELECT DISTINCT playerID from Fielding WHERE teamID = Batting.teamID AND yearID = Batting.yearID AND pos in ('OF', 'RF', 'CF', 'LF')) AND G > 40 GROUP BY yearID ORDER BY OF_OPS asc
From the results, it looks like their .215 BA and .614 OPS are indeed on track to be the worst ever.
That being said, this article was posted on the 4th of this month, and the Red Sox are already up to a .234 BA and .651 OPS.
This is still in line to make them the worst Sox outfield in the 162 game era, but they are closing in on the '92 Sox.
