Yankees are the favourites for the division now, certainly. I'd be surprised if Boston holds off Tampa with that terrible rotation.
"Terrible" rotation? You're going to have to explain that one to me, unless that's likely your anti-Boston bias speaking.
You are telling me you have faith in any Red Sox starter outside of Beckett and Lester? Their starting pitching ERA is 4.52 so far, which is ranked 18th in the majors.
Wakefield is a decent pitcher I suppose, but he projects out as their #3 right now. There are all kinds of question marks surrounding Penny, Dice-K, Smoltz, and Buchholz. I'm not sure why they chose to add Martinez instead of a starter.
