Honest question, why are the Sox expected to win so many games? Their roster doesn't impress me. What am I missing?

Many would say they added the best SP & Closer in the offseason so I think that is part of it. Many also think Betts & Boegarts are going to have big seasons and Pedroia has looked good and healthy again this spring. Not saying I agree with all of it but the 2 additions were nice

I was sort of wondering the same thigh, Sharp. They have very high-end skill at 4 positions (#1SP, Closer, SS & RF), no doubt but I just don't see the depth. People rail on the Jays pitching, (who return the same players that pitched well last year plus additions), but that Sox staff looks very thin to me, and the lineup isn't nearly as potent or deep as the Jays.

I actually like the Yankees to get 2nd this year and a possible WC.

I like the Rays to win 80+ if their bullpen holds up. Offence is pretty much the same, but, their rotation is significantly better, I think.

The Yankees staff? Baseball tonight talked for about 20 minutes last night about that staff. They have a ton of questions too and they are also a total crapshoot as to how it will go. They said the 5th spot is either CC or Nova but neither have looked good.

There is not one starting staff in the east that I like a lot, not one.

I think every team in the East has multiple question marks. I think the Jays have less questions than the others, that's why they are my pick.

My prediction right now for Boston is around 84-85 wins. I think they will be bunched together with the O's, Yankees and Rays. All right around 80-85 wins and I see Toronto around to 90-91

baseball tonight lol , stop watching that garbage man

rotation is set , Nova to the pen. 1-4 isn't nearly as bad as a lot think. issue really is the lack of depth more than anything else. Tanaka starting 25+ games needs to happen too.

Take off your homer goggles, their rotation is the garbage. They are not that good.

Not gonna lie I thought they would underachieve this year but they are off to a great start. And yes, Betts is a beast. Just need Bradley to play to his potential.

I can only hope the Sox will pay enough to keep Betts. He is one of those guys like trout or Harper.

They underachieved last year. I thought with the addition of JD they would be much better. I just wasn't sure about Price or their SP beyond Sale. So far so good!

MLB Ranks

#1 in BA
#1 in hits
#1 in runs scored
#6 in HR's (27th last year)

Insane start!

Boston had zero grand slams last season. Moreland just hit their 5th grand slam this season in the 1st 3 weeks of play.

I’ve said way less than that and got myself banned from a discussion thread, watch out, big brother is watching, as far as the red Sox, Wayne called the over 8.5 yesterday I think, then Keith made the over 9 today, both winners, they are hitting the ball well as a team, have been riding them on the run line for awhile now

Um, his post you quoted was over 2 years old, nobody would ever get banned here for saying what he said, and I didn't have the over/under.

1st time no hit in 25 years. Kid pitched a great game but there were a couple of questionable play calls.
