Assuming everyone would know you meant the Red Sox is a bit of a presumption. I assumed you did because they added Beltre and Cameron, but it's dangerous to base everything on assumptions...eventually someone will make a wrong assumption. And that's when people die...
Valid. Sorry, with the World Wide media coverage the Red Sox get through MLB network and ESPN, I thought it was impossible to miss the articles and reports on Theo's genius Runs Saved plan.
From now on the Red Sox will be known as the Sox and the White Sox will be known as that other Chicago team.
the top tier is definitely the Sox
, the M's and the Rays imo.
the Braves might be next when their OF consists of 3 of the following - McClouth, Schafer, Melky and Heyward.
the phillies are in the mix since their weaknesses are at the 2 least important defensive positions (1B and LF).
The A's after years of defensive butchery might have a solid defense.
If the Reds get rid of OCab at SS they have good defenders everywhere else I think.
