The Red Sox offense is not going to get a huge boost from the returns of Carl Crawford and Jacoby Ellsbury. They will be primarily taking the plate appearances that went to Ryan Sweeney and Daniel Nava; both of whom have filled in quite well. (Marlon Byrd’s horrific tenure has been deleted from my memory although, I guess, not permanently.)

In the field is where the returning All-Stars could have the biggest impact. The number of balls that hit the outfield ground should diminish. Better range in two-thirds of the outfield can only aid a questionable pitching staff, which is the Olde Towne Team’s most notable impediment to October baseball.

The Sox can only "bank" on youngster Felix Doubront, reliever-turned-starter Franklin Morales and the five bullpen castaways for so long. The Texan, Josh Beckett, the F*^# Truck and want-a-be Texan, Jon Lester, and the I’m rarely healthy and pitching well, Clay Buchholz, have to lead this team into the playoffs. The trio need to be right for a shot at a flag.  Don't let us down again.
