    Your 2014 predictions? Be bold RSN!

    You all know it's that time of year.  Rosters are shaping up and ST is right around the corner.  Somebody had to start this thread right?  And let's remember that this is only for fun.  Let's be gentle to each other and hope your bold predictions may come true.  

    First off, I see Sox finish 2nd place with 94-68 record.

    Red Sox will extend Lester to 6/$110M deal and he will answer with finishing top 5 in CY award

    Xander Bogaerts will win ROY defeating Tanaka and and participate in AS game

    Ortiz and Napoli will hit more than 65HRs combined

    Sizemore will play more than 130 games and will resign with Red Sox on a 3 yr deal

    At last, Dustin Pedroia will win his 2nd MVP award with .350/.410/.490 25HR-25SB, GG, SS accomplishments

    I see them taking the division again barring any string of injuries

    With all the insurance policies in place they should contend and have the opportunity to defend their Championship! This is a very deep team both on the 25 man and organizationally! Though I think Ben is just about doen the only spot left is the Drew decision and that decision is up to Drew, if he signs good for him, if not then Herrera is the super utility guy. As a switchitting SS,2B,3B with some outfield experience, he'll offer a nice insurance plicy at severaal positions. I won't pretend to know how well indiviguals will do this coming season, but the pieces are in place for a very competitive team starting from day one. Starting pitching gets a B+ grade, bullpen an A+, infield is solid, catching very sound, and only one OF spot in question. With no injuries and no major drop offs this team wins 97 easy! Spring training can't get here soon enough...

    Lester resigns @ 7/125. 

    Sox go through some growing pains this year with the youngsters but finish strong and get into the playoffs with a wildcard berth.

    JBJ emerges as an option at the lead off spot after a slow start to his first full season.

    Xander Bogaerts not only wins ROY but he finishes top 10 in MVP voting.

    Clay Buchholz pitches 30 games.

    One of Dempster/Peavy is traded before opening day.

    One of Barnes Webster Ranaudo are in the rotation by seasons end.

    One of Henry Owens, Garrin Cecchini, Blake Swihart, or Felix Doubront gets traded between now and July 31.

    Sox win back to back championships.

    Grady Sizemore is let go before July

    The Yankees will be the favorites early in the year

    The Yankees will implode by June and things will get really ugly in NY

    Softlaw will find someone to hate and come up with countless trade proposals to ship them out of town.

    Sox finish a game behind Yankees in the division but get a wildcard berth; Sox sweep Yankees in ALCS to return to the World Series, where they beat the Dodgers in 5.
     

    Agree, Dustin Pedroia MVP.

     

    Just like last season, every time someone goes down, a minor leaguer comes in and does the job.

    Bill will be kicked off the forum for good.  We'll all rejoice and sing cumbaya.

    Sox win 95 games.  Finish in first and make it to the ALCS.....after that it's anybody's guess.  Papi goes for .295, 28HR 90RBI's.  Lester wins 17 with a 3.10 ERA.  Boggy wins the Rookie of the year.  JBJ is sent back down with an emerging Sizemore and Drew is re-signed as WMB's slump continues and wins a Gold Glove.

    Big Billy will once again start harping on "the sky falling" with respect to Papi.  He will jump on & beat to death any & every slump by Papi.  If, God forbid, Papi has any type of injury, Lil' Billy will quickly tell us he was right all along & called it first.  He will secretly root for Papi to go down one way or another, in a cynical bid to catch that ellusive personal "win."  After clearly rooting against Papi for the first 2/3 of last season, only to be proven wrong day in & day out by the big Papi, Lil' Billy is desperate to claim a "win," a la the Stiffler.  Like Stiffy, Billy will never surrender.  Never admit defeat.  Never say he was 100% WRONG about anything, even in the face of 100% manifest failure.  Prove him wrong ten ways to Sunday, & he'll simply switch the debate.  Hey, he's learned from the best.......  his idol.  The guy voted more wrong about everything for 2 years running than any Red Sox "fan" in history.........  His guy pal the Stiffler.  Glad to see Billy is willing to pick up the torch & run with it yet again.  ;)

    Keep making predictions Billy.  You two are the best good luck charm the Sox have ever had.  Rumors of Papi's death are greatly exaggerated.  Keep talking Bill.  PLEASE!  ;)

    Pretty realistic, except I think Nava shall have a higher OBP and Middlebrooks shall be lower, including BA.
