Hopefully our rebuild goes as good as Boston did in one year. They had a horrible year last year finishing 25+ games back. They redid a good portion of their everyday lineup but added 2nd tier players:

They built around Ortiz-Pedroia-Saltalamacchia-Ellsbury. They added Shane Victorino, Mike Carp and Jonny Gomes in corner outfield/IB/DH roles.

they added Mike Napoli at 1st and Steven Drew at SS

They have gotten little out of Drew and Gomes but the others have produced. They have had a big year from the rookie Iglesias filling in for Middlebrooks and Drew who both have been hurt and contributed very little

Their pitching is better this year but they don't have a lot more talented staff than the White Sox do.
