In response to Ice-Cream's comment:
But not before he one-hits the Sox. So he will actually be 1-3 when he is sent packing.
Dice-K will go 0-3 with a 9.85 ERA and then the Indians will send his Hello Kitty a** back to the minors. LOL
As for my predictions, someone will pitch in hard luck, pitching well but not getting the wins he should. One will break out and suprise in a good way, and one will fail miserably. the other two will pitch in line with lifetime stats. My prediction is that Lester returns to a better than average starter, but pitches in bad luck; Buchholz has a breakout year and is the ace of the staff. Doubront is the one I predict disappoints badly (and is replaced in the rotation by Steven Wright):
Lester - 14 - 8, 3.35, 33 starts
Buchholz - 20 - 8, 3.09, 32 starts (only because he tires at the end of the season...sub 3.00 until Sept.)
Lackey - 14 - 12, 4.06, 32 starts
Dempster - 15 - 13, 4.22, 30 starts
Doubront - 3 - 7, 12 starts (on DL in June and July, in bullpen in August and Sept)
Wright - 10 - 3, 3.44, 16 starts
Aceves/Morales or De LaRosa make the other 7 starts, with a 3-4 record.
91 wins and 61 losses, as bullpen has a 12 - 6 record and combined era under 4.00.
