2013 squad beat the next two best teams in baseball in the WS and ALCS. The idea this year is to keep that together as much as possible and let a good farm system go to work. Outside of losing Ellsbury's important bat they have kept that together for the most part. Pitchers (12) Burke Badenhop Clay Buchholz Chris Capuano Felix Doubront John Lackey Jon Lester Andrew Miller Edward Mujica Jake Peavy Junichi Tazawa Koji Uehara Brandon Workman Catchers (2) A.J. Pierzynski David Ross Infielders (6) Xander Bogaerts Jonathan Herrera Will Middlebrooks Mike Napoli David Ortiz Dustin Pedroia Outfielders (5) Mike Carp Jonny Gomes Daniel Nava Grady Sizemore Shane Victorino Gomes and Nava will once again platoon. The outfield looks different, and with all of the extra pitchers and middle of the field prospects in the minors, I would not be surprised to see a move made. Sizemore has some big shoes to fill even if he looks more like his Cleveland days and Victorino is dinged up. The pitching depth on the farm is tremendous. Owens, Webster and Barnes are all BP top 100 prospects. There are 6 other Sox prospects on that list. Let the games begin!
