    Pitchers and catchers report in less than a month. Bring on baseball!

    This broke my heart hearing that big Jim signed with the Twins...

    He can be pretty rough to listen to at times. Whenever the Sox are down big or in a funk, he is downright awful. But when the Sox are playing well and winning, he can be a lot of fun to listen to.

    Hawk is HORRIBLE when the Sox are getting their asses whipped. He's a blast when the sox are doing good. I can see why people can't stand him, but I don't mind him. His catch phrases are too fun. I've even caught my Cubs fans friends using them, even though they claim they can't stand the Hawk.

    I will give you credit....

    You aim high!!!!

    Jones wont hit 15 home runs...
    Quentin will hit 20-24.....if healthy
    I like Beckham.....But he will not put up the "triple crown" numbers you think he will.....
    Rios will be lucky to hit .235-.240
    Free Boston Lou!!!!

    I have lofty goals for this team. I think they will improve from last year- better defense, better starting pitching (a full year with Peavy). Realistically, they are many question marks- andruw jones, rios are going to have to put up better than expected numbers for this team to contend. I honestly think they will make the playoffs- by default if nothing else. The division is weaker than last year with detriot doing a lot of unloading. the only other team they have to worry about is the pesky twinkies. since they are moving to a new stadium, i think that will be to their disadvantage bc the majority of their team is built for the homer dome (speed). only time will tell....

    you think gordo is going to bat in the 3 hole and quinten will slide to the 5? maybe the other way around.


    i haven't seen Jones in a while...is he still a blimp. i also don't see him batting 6th. maybe 7th or 8th.

    the rotation looks pretty good tho. couple of studs at the top of and some pretty good arms towards the back end. key for pitching will be the middle relief and Jenks not blowing saves.

    Sox should be in it, along with detroit and MN. Cleveland will suck, as will the Royals

    I think Ozzie will tinker like he usually does. I put Becks at the 3 hole because I'm optimistic about his batting average and power. I really think he will break out into a superstar.

    I honestly think Andruw Jones is gonna suck and be a possible cancer in the clubhouse. However, I'm very high on Kotsay and think he will be the primary DH this year- the man hits the ball hard.

    The pitching is stout and watchout for Floyd and Danks having awesome years.

    I dunno about Beckham in the 3 hole just yet. But I am expecting a huge year out of him.

    Not expecting shit from fat-ass Jones. That guy really went to shit after the Dodgers paid him. I read earlier the Sox are still in the running for Johnny Damon. He would be the perfect DH, plus an extra OF. If not Damon, I'd expect Kotsay to get the majority of DH AB's.

    This starting rotation is scary. I dont know if any team in the league has a better top 4 than the Sox this year.

    We should compete for a division title. 85-90 wins should win this division. Hoping the Twins struggle this year now that they're not playing in that asshole dome anymore. Thank God we don't have to watch baseball in that shithole again.

    I understand the desire for a baseball only stadium, but why would you build an open air stadium in MN. :lol:

    They should have took a page out of the Brewers playbook and copied that stadium.

    I think Damon would be a welcomed addition to the Sox. He'd be a great leader and give Rios a run for his money.

    I agree with all this. I must say, I am a little disappointed in how Kenny filled the DH role this offseason. I know it provides versatilty and Ozzie wanted it split-up, but I just don't see significant production from Kotsay/Jones. Maybe the two of them together will equal one solid DH? I didn't want Thome back, but I'd almost rather see Dye back than Kotsay/Jones. I mean, we have Kotsay backing-up Rios, and that's more than a little frightening. I was big on the Rios move last year, but he's gotta show us something NOW.

    I believe CQ will be the biggest factor in this team's success. He puts up MVP-type numbers like he did in 08 (and stays healthy), with this pitching staff, we could run away with the Central. If he struggles, I don't know where the power numbers are going to come from, and we're gonna have to grind out wins. And that means we'll have to rely on the bullpen to close out games, and even with the addition of Putz, I'm not completely convinced that's gonna work.

    I definitely like this team better than the 09 team though.
    He floated back down 'cause he wanted to share, his key to the locks on the chains he saw everywhere.
