The chemistry will click immediately
The Red Sox should be a superior team to last year's edition on the field this season. There's no doubt they'll be a superior group in the clubhouse. Shane Victorino, Joel Hanrahan, Ryan Dempster, Mike Napoli, and Jonny Gomes are among the new acquisitions who have longstanding reputations as excellent teammates. Ben Cherington's emphasis on character this offseason reminds me of how the Patriots favor players who were captains and leaders of their college teams in the draft. The 2012 Red Sox are going to be a very likable team.
