When you're putting a .300+ BA guy as your #9, you're looking at a team with GREAT POTENTIAL!
They will score runs. They will be in the top three teams in runs scored IMO. Its all going to come down to SP, as always. If that holds up we will be back playing October baseball.
who did they lose? Salty, Drew, Ellsbury are the big names.
I think they can gain at 2nd base with Pedey healthy, AJ might give us something very similiar to what Salty did, and I think Bogaerts will be much more productive than Drew.
WMB will probably give us better production at 3B, I hope and all things considered I don't think we will see a huge drop off in CF.
Of course guys could regress too, but we might have better depth options too this year.
It will be interesting, and being the #1 offense is hard to repeat because there is only one way to go. But I think we are easily a top 5 offense this year.
Although past performance is not indicative necessarily of future performance, here is how the Sox have placed in the AL in runs scored in the last six years: 1, 5, 1, 2, 3, 2. Only during the disastrous year Valentine was here did we finish below top 3. I would be shocked if we finished below top three again. Its all up the the SP IMO.
