I have to admit, I did not like the off season signings when they were made. I was all for playing the kids and moving on. Now however I suddenly have a good feeling about this team. The starters do have the possibility of having real #1 & #2's in in Lest and Buch. I also think Lackey has something to prove and he will. Doubby should be fine and win his 12-14 games. The starters are actually pretty deep.
You never know what will happen with the pen, but this one looks strong and deep, especially if Bard makes a comeback.
Im liking the infield alot, again plenty of depth. i believe the addition of some older stable ball players in the outfield will help immensly with the growth of the sox. If this team stays healthy they could make a run.
Best part, we lost no kids in developing this team.
A complete reversal in my thought process from the past winter, but then again signs of spring and my Sox do this to me!
Nice thread and nice post Promise. I am excited about this team too! It's a solid team, both from the talent standpoint and the "intangibles" standpoint, with nice depth. If the team stays relatively healthy they should be playing meaningful baseball throughout September.
And like you said, we lost no kids in putting this team together, nor is the team strapped financially in the upcoming years.
I can't wait for baseball to start!
Thanks Kimi, for the last 47 years spring has sprung eternal for my love of the Sox! Through the good and the not so wonderful!
