      Yup. I like that. That's a pretty solid rotation. Don't forget Brad Penny!
      I'm assuming Tim Wakefield will be there again?
      He just flat out scares me
      Oh well. I like him. When his knuckle ball is on he's real good, when it's off, he's really, really bad
      What would Smoltz role be?
      Is he going to be like a middle reliever?

      • i thnik our rotation would be alot better with out Wakefield in it and as far as i've heard Smolts isn't going to back until June or July and when he does i would like to think he would be a starter

        I respect Wakefield for staying in Boston for so long but every time he pitches we loose to much like Varitek both behind the plate and in our lineup
        so to me the perfect rotation would be

        Josh Beckett

        Jon Lester

        Daisuke Matsuzaka

        Michael Bowden

        Brad Penny

        i think that Boston made a huge mistake in trading Kason Gabbard for Eric Gagne when they should've traded Buchhulz (or how ever you spell it)

          smoltz claims to be ready to go now...but since the sox have so many arms they want to be sure he's as strong as possible so they're holding him out until may...unless there is a rash of injuries i assume

          and gabbard over buchholz? no way...buchholz has been praised since day one by every scout and baseball expert in the country....he's got waaaaay too much potential to give up on after one crappy season...and why would you want gabbard back anyway? he hasn;t pitched well since leaving the sox and has never been a huge prospect.

          • I think Wake has a quite a few good years ahead of him.


            The player I am excited to see is Lars Anderson.

            • I also see Bucholtz as the better pitcher
              Wakefield, I think it's time for him to fade him out. At this stage, he's too much of a risk with him in the rotation on a play-off series for example.
              Heck, even in a regular season. When he gets pounded, he gets pounded big, it's almost impossible for us to have a chance to make a comeback everytime he gets hit hard.
              I'm not sure if he'll be a good middle reliever, though I've seen him a couple times before in that role...

              • i think clay is overrated and his no-hitter was a fluke look at the difference at him and Lester after Jon threw his no-hitter he carried no-hitters in the 6th inning two or three more times and Kason hasn't pitched well since he left because he is with Texas he has no run support where as clay has some of the best players in the league and he couldn't do crap last year and i agree time to say good bye to wake

                • I sure hope you are both wrong about Wake. I am willing to bet that batters still fear him.

                    Well, it's so hard to predict what you're going to be getting out of him
                    It's like I've said, when he's on he's deadly, when he's not is fatal for us
                    With Wakefield if you don't get him early, he stands a chance of pitching a good game, if he gets hit early, it usually put us down a few runs for us to make up that difference. I know that we're always hoping he gives us 6 innings or so, but, I'm still for a more conventional pitcher in our rotation

                    Great guy he is. He really did a great job in 2004 when we won the WS, and has been a solid contributor for us.

                      run support has nothing to do with era and whip....he just isn;t that good of a pitcher

                      and buchholz was one of the top prospects in the entire country not just the redsox organization...he was the sox minor league pitcher of the year twice if i'm not mistaken

                      and the sox have not given up on him yet, the rangers asked for him especially in any deal for a catcher and the sox refused

                      • wake is too valuable to just dump...the guy can start, relieve, pitch on short rest or short notice.....he eats innings...yeah i agree he's either on or off but when he's on he's unhittable....he was their best pitcher for a stretch last season and even though he didn;t pitch well for a stretch he finished the season with a whip of 1.18... as a reference johan santana's whip last year was 1.15, jake peavy's 1.18...in fact, wake had the 5th best whip of all american league starters

                                By Ian Browne / MLB.com

                                FORT MYERS, Fla. -- While only a select 37,000 or so will be able to attend the Red Sox's Fenway Park opener against the Tampa Bay Rays on April 6, there will be a different kind of rally being held all around the Boston area that day. It is one that has no attendance capacity.
                                In fact, the hope is that this rally will produce a ridiculous overflow of participants.

                                That is the date of the fourth annual Rally Against Cancer, in which Red Sox fans are encouraged to partner up with their business or school and have every student or employee contribute $5 to the Jimmy Fund. In exchange, all those who contribute can wear Red Sox clothing to work or school that day.

                                There is big incentive for the company and school that raises the most money. The winner will get a visit from Red Sox left-hander Jon Lester, who is the honorary chair of this year's Rally Against Cancer.

                                The only requirement is that the company or school must be within a two-hour drive of Boston to win the Lester visit. Anyone can sign up at www.rallyagainstcancer.org.

                                In August 2006, Lester was diagnosed with anaplastic large cell lymphoma. He had six chemotherapy treatments before becoming cancer-free. And not long after his comeback, Lester won the clinching Game 4 of the 2007 World Series. On May 19, 2008, Lester fired a no-hitter vs. the Royals. He is currently one of the top left-handed starters in the American League.

                                "Obviously, it's a great honor for me -- not only me, but my family to be a part of this great organization," said Lester. "Any time that we can call on the community to raise money for a great cause, not only for the Jimmy Fund but research in cancer in general, it's always a good thing. Any amount of money that we can get would definitely help out."

                                Mike Andrews, the second baseman of the 1967 AL pennant-winning Red Sox and longtime chairman of the Jimmy Fund, hopes that the economic struggles don't have an effect on the success of cancer research.

                                "Unfortunately, we know what the economy is like right now. To say we're not concerned would not be true," said Andrews. "Cancer does not realize that we're in a recession. We don't want to lose the ground that we are gaining and the enormous strides were making by not having the funding moving forward. I think more than any other time in my 30 years at Dana Farber, we're reaching out and asking people to do everything they can to support us this year."

                                Lester hopes that this year's donation sum will be record-setting.

                                "I'm a competitive person, and with [Dustin] Pedroia raising [more than $500,000] last year, we're definitely going to try to break his record," said Lester. "That's my goal going into this -- to get his name off the top of that list and get my name up there. Hopefully we can do a lot and raise a lot of money for this."
