First there's Beckett then Dice-K, and so ends the stability (and they aren't without their own question marks). Can either Lester or Buchholz be expected to throw well over 150 IP this season? Wakefield, even when healthy, is a very mediocre pitcher at this point in his career. And who's the #6 starter? Tavarez?

Schilling's presence held it all together, he was their 2nd best starter last year.

I wouldn't be surprised if Boston made a move to get a pitcher before ST.


Schilling gone makes them a MUCH MUCH MUCH Worse playoff team.

Well, definitely. Some Red Sox fans act like the playoffs are a foregone conclusion for this season. They're not, not in this competitive league.

I forgot the playoffs begin in February. Man they are stuffed!
It's because they haven't got any "True Yankees" or Tulo/Jeter in their team as well.
And J.D Drew just isn't clutch enough. :-t :-t :-D

Wow. Thats one of the funniest things I've ever read. :-b

How about the 2 foot wall in right? Or the fact that right fielders play beyond the foul pole there.

What a circus of a stadium.

Who is anyone's number starter? The red sox still have a better rotation than anyone else in the AL East, and Schilling maybe back for the playoffs. Are the Red Sox happy Schilling is gone? No. But it allows them to slide their second or third best pitcher into the rotation.
"I do not think baseball of today is any better than it was 30 years ago... I still think Radbourne is the greatest of the pitchers." John Sullivan 1914-Old athletes never change.

It's not that competitive. The Orioles just blew themselves up. The D-Rays will continue to be inadequate. The Blue Jays aren't really that good. And the Yankees are relying upon positional players in their mid-30's and pitchers in their low-20's.

Sounds like the Sox take the division by 5 games to me.
0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.

Yeah I agree.
The Yankees have a very uncertain rotation (Yahoo has Mussina as their ace - pardon?) Their young guys are going to be awesome, but they've got growing pains to go through this year.
At least Boston is Beckett - Dice K - Currently Hurt Schilling and then 2 young guys/Wakefield/Man with no eyes.

All the Yankees pitching plans could click perfectly into place (see White Sox, Chicago 2005), but that's quite unlikely.

Right. The only thing more ridiculous would be to have things sticking up in the playing field.

Oh wait....
