5. Clay Buchholz will lead the Red Sox in wins:
Yeah, the Red Sox rotation isn’t exactly reminding anyone of the 1971 Baltimore Orioles and their four 20-game winners. But at 8-2, Buchholz is second on the staff in victories behind nine-game winner Felix Doubront, and thanks to great run-support, he’s accumulated wins despite pitching horribly in April (8.69 ERA) and slightly less horribly in May (5.60 ERA). On the encouraging side, Buchholz was exceptional in June (4-0, 2.40 ERA) before being sidelined with esophagitis. Should he return to the mound and his June form soon, he should end up with 15 or so wins.
