Lol, you're looney. I watch the same baseball every year that you do and I don't see much potential from that team, aside from Hosmer and Moustakas. Gordon capped out and is what he is. Butler's HR to flyball rate on balls batted went up 19%. Lorenzo Cain can't even make contact as a leadoff hitter. You guys want to talk about a suspect pitching staff... check out KC. Shields as an ace is somewhat plausible, but Ervin Santana? If I had to guess: 1. Shields; 2. Santana; 3. CY CHEN; 4. Hochevar; 5. Mendoza/Paulino/Injured Danny Duffy.

What is so appealing about this team?

I guess I'll make my predictions:
NL East - Nationals
NL Central - Reds
NL West - Dodgers
WC - Braves & Giants

AL East - Blue Jays
AL Central - Tigers
AL West - A's/Angels
WC - Angels/A's & Rays

They wouldn't trade the best prospect in baseball if they knew they couldn't win. I'll agree that their back end of their rotation is iffy, but look at the red sox rotation? Definitely not any better. Gordon will definitely have a nice bounce back year. I also love the arms in their bullpen.

And mike montgomery is gonna be a name to watch out for. His stuff is terrific and I expect him to get called up this year. Now he did struggle last year in triple A but he's way too talented to do it twice.

Fantastic predictions, brother.

Just going to go with playoff predictions here.

ALCS: Angels over Tigers
NLCS: NATIONALS over GIANTS (Hopefully Brother CP, Brother Deso, and I finally get our seven game series between these two ELITE teams).

World Series: NATIONALS over Angels.

I'm a huge Angels fan but there is still questions about the pitching.

I'm currently OBSESSED with their pitching. Best rotation and bullpen in the majors. NOT EVEN CLOSE

I think if everyone on that staff stays healthy, there is no way they don't at least win the National League. Hopefully Gio and ROSS don't regress.

Pedroia, Ortiz, Napoli, Middlebrooks, Elsbury will get it done. It's still a line up that will wear you out. Bard will have a rebound year and command the zone. Hanrahan is an upgrade over nutcase Aceves. Dempster/Lester pitch around a 4.00 ERA. Doubront and Buchholz have the stuff to make people swing and miss.

They're really not as bad as everyone thinks. It's not outrageous to deduce this. The AL East is a crapshoot.
What if all those pitchers blow goats though? Really all of them don't have to suck at the same time for Boston to be a sub .500 team.

I like the lineup though. Victorino might be meh as a hitter now, but he's probably better in the OF than anything they had last season not named Jacoby Ellsbury.

I'm really liking the potential of the Red Sox and Diamondbacks. I could be extremely wrong, but I can see Pedroia and Goldschmidt both having MVP caliber seasons respectively for their ball clubs. As far as pitching for the Red Sox, I think Dempster and Lester will be steady, kind of like a Mark Buehrle type. I don't see the Orioles or Rays striking fear into any of the AL East pitching staffs. The Yankees still do if Tex stays injury free. The Blue Jays look good on paper, but I'm expecting Reyes, Joey Bats or Lawrie to get hurt at one point or another.

In a nutshell, the staff could entirely suck. I don't think it will. I don't see Dempster or Lester being "aces" anymore, but they should be the calming influences that give the Red Sox quality starts when guys like Doubront or Buchholz get wound up or fail to seize the moment, so to speak.
