SS: Lugo- By default, and I don't like it - no walks, team that doesn't run
1B: Youk - may give way to Coco at some point
DH: Papi - MVP
LF: Manny - Knee? Attitude? See Pena
RF: Drew - I'm guessing 350 ab, 12 hr, 50 rbi, .280, and Bos peddling him at the break
C: Varitek - Get Kotteras ready...not much left
3B: Lowell - a repeat of '06 is the best to expect
2B: Pedroia - I'll bet he gets more ab in Pawtucket than Boston
CF: Coco - Should be 1 or 2, but again, Boston doesn't run. Trade bait with Ellsbury close
BC: Mirabelli - Need Kotteras here, Wake needs to go to the Pen.
Util: Cora - Serviceable, no speed or power.
BOF:Pena - Will the 3rd most AB of Boston's OF'ers
BN: Hinske - trade him - need speed coming off the bench. No need for a backup at 1B-3B with Youk-Papi-Cora around
SP1: Schilling- 180 innings max - how many guys pitch like an ace in what they say is their final year? 12w, 4.25 era
SP2: Matsuzaka - "Matsuzaka" is Japanese for "Santana"
SP3: Beckett - a bounceback candidate, finally threw 200 ip's no injuries
SP4: Papelbon - should be # 5, 180 ip's max, will mirror Schillings #'s
SP5: Wakefield - belongs in the pen - will not stay healthy.
CL: Pineiro - moderate sucess, 3.80 era, 30 sv
SU: Timlin - gives setup spt away to Delcarmen/Hansen
SU: Delcarmen - setup will be his in the future
MR: Donnelly - nice pickup, but on the downside
MR: Tavarez - should be # 5
MR: Romero - if not efffective early will get released
MR: Okajima - lefty Specialist
MR: Hanson - If Piniero fails, he is option # 1. He will get it done. This year?
