That smell of pine tar and hot dogs is beginning to fill the Boston air yet again. I got word on my drive home from work last night that Dustin Pedroia's wrist is nothing to be worried about and merely a strain. The talk will go one throughout the next five or six months, and I'm sure you'll hear a mouthful from me about how horrible Mike Cameron is and how strongly I feel that we should trade JD Drew and need yet another large bat. I will withhold judgement on Big Papi until the regular season actually starts.
The 2010 Red Sox Starting Lineup
I'm still going to miss Jason Bay from this lineup. Even though we all know that Mike Lowell doesn't have much left in the tank, it's tough to watch those guys that you care about slowly drift away from the limelight of the team. The 2010 lineup doesn't look overly weak, but it doesn't compare as well with the other top lineups out there in New York, Philadelphia and St. Louis.
The Red Sox 2010 Starting Rotation
The possibility of the six-man rotation is something that you may hear about again this season. If Dice-K can stay healthy, I strongly feel that Wake will be a great addition to the long relief of the bullpen, being able to give our starters plenty of rest.
Thanks to, my hero, Keith Allison for the photo of Terry Francona.
