What do you see of the 2B situation in Boston?

Is Lorretta a lock for fantastic numbers this year? Hes out of Petco and into Fenway so I see the numbers improving, lineup is better, and the average will always be there. I am concerned if he can do it this year though, his age?

What do you see him from him?
Sean Tracey has my apologies, we all know Ozzie Guillen is an idiot. I'm rooting for you!

Well, being a Boston fan, you might get a slightly skewed stat line, but I have him pegged for this, but a wide area for variation....

10 HRs
75 RBI
85 Rs
3 SBs

Quite honestly, the last 3 years I was actually a bit surprised about his average, but it looks a lot like an older version of Tadahito Iguchi, who will be priced higher bc of his age and Loretta's injury last year...

What exactly do you mean by that

If Loretta can stay healthy and play 150 games, I would agree with that statline but add a ton of additional runs. That said, he is an injury risk.

I'm a sox fan, and i expect good things from him. Might be a little biased. I look for him to stay under his numbers from 2 years ago. With that said, everyone in my fantasy league is a sox fan, so he'll end up going way too early. I agree with Thomas's numbers. He's going to have a lot of protection in that lineup too.

Boston won't really help his base numbers very much, Petco favors gap hitters who hit for average so it played right into his strengths. I would expect his R's/RBI's to go up a bit though assuming he stays healthy.
