    I think our pitching (Starting & BP) is better than any team in the ALE. If they get some consistent offense, winning the division IS realistic IMHO.

    I say they win the division.

    I didnt agree with signing Drew. seemed a little desperate to me. I was Drews biggest supporter last year, but to me, he wasnt a good fit this year. If he does stay Im sure he will go on one of his of more »

    While I doubt we see that many trades, i believe we will see a lot of action with the Sox. Lester- NEEDS to be signed. Open the checkbook, hes earned it. Koji- trade bait  Gomes- trade bait if they do more »

    6 years with an annual salary of 22m is very fair for both sides Lester should be just fine into his mid 30's. Why on earth would a big market team go cheap on pitching? This guy has proven himself an more »

    Lester is our Ace and NEEDS to be resigned. id start at 22m per over 6 years. If it takes a vesting option based on games pitched over his last two seasons to get it done then do it. You can bet the N more »

    Hamstring injuries can sometimes lead to lower back issues. Thats what vic is going through. I think theyve been pretty open about it. When you get to shanes age, injuries dont heal as quickly. Im sur more »

    No need to rush this. Vic can be good for his final year which is what Id want. Hes a good role model to the younger players and should help the Sox in 2015. lets call this year a wash for Vic and see more »

    No way you offer Koji that much. Not even close. Hes NOT same pitcher and will be 40yo. If he wants to stay at the same salary, then fine. Why give him an almost 10m raise? Makes no sense to me. id of more »

    It will be interesting to see where all these kids end up.  The jury is still out as to what position a few players will be playing. Xander Betts Middy Cecchini and Holt could end up at a couple diffe more »

    The problem with making a trade that would be worth it right now is most teams arent going to deal anyone good just yet. Even teams that are 10 games out of it. Once July rolls around talks will heat more »

    Holt has hit at every level, but hasnt been given his fair shot having regular playing time in MLB. I hope he can keep it going throughout the season. I expect a cool off, but hes a .294BA in the mino more »
