In response to moonslav59's comment:
I would not be surprised if we score more runs than the Yanks, or at least come close.
On Paper, their offense is looking pretty good, but remember, Tex was in a steady decline before the injuries, no Cano, Ryan may play a lot of SS, and age or fragility may take a heavy toll in 2014.
On paper, our rotation, pen, and pitching depth, as of this moment, looks much much better than the Yanks.
Moon thats a huge stretch, we lost Jacoby and JBJ will not impact our lineup next season. If I'm wrong it will be apologized for. Middy is no answer at 3B and SS is still very weak offensively even if we sign Drew. Bogy should grow into 3B but I think we still hope hes a SS, either way he will be fine. We have a very weak overall lineup next season if Drew, Middy, JBJ and Bogy all get significant playing time.
Even worse we still only have Papi who is capable of a high OBP/BA/low SO ratio and power.
Just out of curiosity, why do you think neither the recently turned 25 year old Middlebrooks or the 23 year old Bradley Jr. can't improve next season? Also, is it possible that Xander Bogaerts can have a "Rookie of the Year" type season?
