I'm pretty confident in Lester, Bush, & Doubie.
We either get on a roll with Lackey & Dempster, or CRASH AND BURN in yet another chapter in a potentially EPIC failure.
I absolutely love the potential of the rest of this team! I think our D as presently constituted is one of the best in the mlb. Our BP should be one of the best. We've got more than enough fire-power for plenty of run support...... Farrell will run a very tight ship. We've got plenty of speed to burn....
This season comes down to these two guys. They either step up & lead this team to potential "greatnes" (OK.... relative "greatness.... as in having a "great" season. Exciting..... Fun to rally behind..... etc.... Great guys to root for...)
They simply don't have it anymore..... & the sox languish. Crash & burn... start a new chapter in an epic collapse!
I think it all comes down to this! I still have a great deal of hope for both guys, but if it seems clear they can't deliver, I PRAY this FO has the guts to call on some of our up and coming starts from AAA! Who knows, that could add a whole new level of excitement. Let's hope we don't have to become "thrill seekers."
