This is the first season in a long while where I truly don’t know how good the Red Sox will be. It’s kind of…exhilarating, not having such high expectations this time. Like anything could happen.

  • Please don’t tell me this is going to be another injury-filled season. I’m already uneasy, and this is just a hamstring strain. Can’t there be a season where everyone’s happy & healthy? (Hamstring strain for Clay Buchholz)
  • “The Red Sox…signed identical twins from Venezuela, both named Luis Basabe, both switch-hitters who throw righthanded, both are around the same size and each of whom signed for $450,000 when they turned 16…” Well that’s, uh, different. (Baseball America’s Red Sox International Signing Round-Up)

This season will be something to watch. Maybe the 2013 Sox will just be one of those fun teams to watch, where winning won’t matter as much as it used to.
