I know I'm biased being a fan of our team, but who has a better all around line-up than the Sox?

Yankees? They have Urshela, Gardner, Judge (injuries), Stanton (not that great) Sure they have Gleyber, but who thinks DJ is going to have the same year as last year?

Astros? Maybe...

Dodgers? Maybe...

Of course it just depends on how much better Moncada, Eloy, and Anderson are. It also depends on if Robert/Madrigal do what they did in AAA. If they match AAA and you see improvements from Moncada, Eloy, Anderson... then you've got to say the Sox offense is top 5 easy!

Sox biggest problem is they don’t have many high OBP guys.

That said, Dodgers, especially with Betts, way better than probably anyone. We could top 10 in potential for sure but I think the rating as of now is fair.

I'm a bit surprised that they have Ariz. finishing 2nd above SD.

BTW, if they had predicted the Sox winner of the division, I would have bought into the article 100%.

Agreed to all the above.

83 seems fair enough, but there's lots of variables with so many young players in the lineup and rotation. All I can say is that i'm excited to see what everyone in that lineup 1-9 can do plus see what Giolito, Cease, and Kopech can do for us.
