Those are his stats from the 2005 season
14-10 150k 70bb 4.18 ERA
I think you hit the era about right but I believe he will get a few more wins.
Manny, Varitek, Mueller
I really think Red Sox-Yankee won't be all that close next year and Toronto-Baltimore has a good chance of being in front of Boston by the end of the season
maybe one of the funniest posts of the year
I hate the Yankees as much as anyone(thus automatically make me somewhat a Boston supporter)
but what has to be said needs to be said
Mueller is a FA and outta there with the Lowell acquisition and Youkilis.
Tek won the Silver Slugger
Manny hit 45 HR with 144 RBI.
I'd say they're alright.
Granted the Sox (and Yanks) are getting old, but it will still be a two horse race for at least the next two years. Baltimore is a mess, they have no system and spend their money poorly. Toronto has some pitching with Roy, Chacin and League, but other than Wells their offense doesn't excite me. Tampa has the system to start making noise someday, but that won't be until Delmon, Upton, and some pitching are used to The Show.
so you are counting on Lowell? Let's say one of Wells/Manny gets dealt(let's say Wells) and Damon signs with the Yankees.
1B Petagine? Youkilis?
2B Let's say Graffanino re-sign, if not, Alex Cora
CF ??? who's their best CF prospect? Who's the best CF in the market after Damon and Giles?
Next 2 spot are between Schilling(who still didn't prove he's back), Wakefield(he's on, he's off, he's on, he's off, inconsistency), Wade Miller(I thought It was a 1 year contract?
), Jonathan Papelbon(I really, really, really like him)
RP Chad Bradford?
RP Foulke(just terrible last year)
Are you telling me this is a good Red Sox team compare to 2004(2005)?
SP Wade Miller/Wake(Lowe)
RP Embree(bunch of no-body)
