Red Sox prediction for 2015

I just finished writing the Complete Boston Red Sox 2015 Season Preview for Bleacher Report.  I highly recommend taking a look.  Here's a quick summary:

- The Red Sox offense should be spectacular.  Mookie Betts (pictured) is poised to become a superstar at 22 years of age.  The rate at which he's blown through the minors is unbelievable (I do want to say for the record, though, I'm the tiniest bit concerned that despite his .471 average, he has zero walks through 11 spring training games).
- The rotation scares me.  If everybody pitches their best, it'll be fine.  But, that's a lot to ask.  If things go in the opposite direction it could be a nightmare.
- I'm also nervous about Koji Uehara.  He's about to turn 40, and he was terrible at the end of last season.

All in all, I think great offense + mediocre pitching = a pretty good team.

87-75, AL Wild Card is my prediction.


  1. who do you have beating them for the AL East crown?

    1. You know, you're the second person to ask me that. I didn't really think about it, I just feel like they should win in the mid/high 80s, which probably isn't good enough to win the division.
