Josh Beckett will have a dominant year, and he'll be their number 3 starter. Ridiculous.
Now all eyes can turn to Barry Zito. Yawn. More Scott Boras in the news. At least he'll be talking to more than one team.
"I'd like to meet Curt Schilling," said Dice-K. Umm, pretty sure you'll get the chance dude. He's learning Japanese for you buddy. What a pal.
The whole Red Sox brass flying to California and lighting bags of feces on fire in front of Boras' house reminded me of the Thanksgiving dinner Schilling deal. I remember the excitement and palpable energy there was surrounding the team then, and look what happened the very next season...
Not a prediction, just a thought.
The real prediction? Royals v. Cubs in the series, but they only make it to two games and the world as we know it implodes on itself.
Now, votes on who the hell is going to anchor that (still) travesty of a bullpen for the Sox come '07? Tavares?
