This team reminds me of the Florida Panthers last year- went out and got a lot of lower end second liners and third line guys and it worked pretty well.

Sox first four with health stacks up with most- Ellsbury, Victorino, Pedroia, and Ortiz

best case scenario: 2 guys who finished in top two of MVP voting and still under 30; and the best DH in baseball last year when healthy (biggest concern of the four)

second four- Napoli, Middlebrooks, Gomes, and Drew (these guys all have question marks mostly due to health- but they have done it, permoned well and have something to prove; I had Drew on my APBA team and for 3 years 2007-09 was a beast and still what? 29, 30....sort of an infield version of Ellsbury)

starting pitching

Five guys who can win 12 (likely wont happen but all have in the past two seasons)

Buccholz
Lester
Dempster
Lackey
Doubront

two power arms that can start but certainly add value

Franklin Morales (LH) like him
Ruby Dela Rossa- has a lights out arm

bullpen- lot of questions but lot of good arms

Tazawa- looked great last half- one of few guys
Uehrea
Aceves
Melanson
Bard- biggest question
Bailey-second biggest question

Andrew Miller- can start, throws left and hard, offers value

Rich Hill- poor sob was destroyed by Valentine (jerk0

overall, for a bridge team, I'm going second place and don't forget how great the job Ross did with Atl pitchers

demise premature
