    "My opinion that we will have a better than average ERA is based on Bill James projections:"

    Well then, it must be true!

    The god of statistical analysis has spoken!

    Yup, that's how it goes in the real world.  Statistical analysis will beat gut feeling consistently.  And knowing where you are on the food chain probably means more than knowing the information itself.

    Would that be the Stokely food chain? Isn't that where Bill James used to work?

    Who cares who the closer is?  Our best new arm is Uehara - since 2010, he's got a WHIP of .772 and has only walked 17 batters in 145 innings.  Bailey has had some good years, and deserves more than 15 innings in a Red Sox uniform to prove his worth.

    Uehara, Hanrahan, Bailey, Tazawa, Miller, Breslow, Aceves - this is reminiscent of the 2011 Yankees, when they had Robertson, Soriano & Rivera, and effectively only required 5-6 innings out of guys like Colon and Garcia.  We probably shouldn't expect more than six out of Dempster and Lackey.  But with this solid a bullpen, I think we have a shot.

    Tazawa, Aceves & Mortensen all feel like viable starters if somebody falters or gets injured.

    I'm actually hoping they're going to stretch Rubby out as a starter in Pawtucket.
