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.
