    Yeah, the Sox still have Sale, Quintana and Rodon. But they also have Danks and ERic Johnson is the only RHed starter.  Yes, they have Robertson but the other relievers are so-so.  Even with Sale, Quintana and Robertson having strong years, Sox were 7th in ERA and 11th in preventing baserunners in the AL.  So pitching isn't strong enough to carry a lousy offense.
    I agree the offense has gotten better .  Lawrie and Frazier plug up the disasters at 2b and 3b, and CAtcher should be better too. This basically means the offense goes from worst in the majors this year to slightly below mediocre.   SS, LF, RF and DH are all trouble spots.  They do need another big bat in the OF or DH, plus someone who can put up decent numbers at SS.  Plus another solid RHed starter to bump Danks out of the rotation.  Plus a strong setup guy in front of Robertson.
    This team had 7 holes on offense and 2 -3 pitching wise this year.   They plugged 3 of those holes on offense but none on pitching.  Meaning that there is still a ways to go before this team is a true contender.

    OK, now that the Sox have added Frazier (never mind his 660 second half OPS) they will be the most feared team in the American League for 2016.

    If the Sox add a good corner OFer to make Garcia a bench player, they've given more reasons to BELIEVE.  It would still take rebounds from Melky and LaRoche, plus a decent SS and right-handed starting pitcher to make the Sox a legitimate contender.  But the other teams in the AL Central haven't done much to improve themselves.

    I might believe if Reinsdorf actually spends serious money on Upton or Cespedes or even an Alex Gordon.   As far as RHed starters, the good ones are gone.  Still 3-4 marginal ones floating out there (Fister, Lincecum, Lohse, etc).  Only 3 free agent SS's on the market - Ramirez, Desmond and Rollins.     
    Remains to be seen if Sox believe that they've done enough by adding Frazier and Lawrie and don't want to spend any more serious $$ or if they do plunk down $$ on one of the big 3 remaining OFers. If they do that they should go whole hog -get Desmond for SS and maybe a Fister or Lohse for the rotation
    .   Then it might be time to BELIEVE.

    Well, ex-Dodger Jerry Sands is probably a better hitter than current Dodger Trayce Thompson.  That said, don't expect either one to ever get their own wing at Cooperstown.

    Yep, it's a happy thought to picture Trayce Thompson in Dodger Blue. Laughing

    However, it doesn't quite make up for those sad memories of Larry Sherry coming in from the bullpen in Oct. '59. Sad

    I bet most of this board wishes they could have been half as athletic as good ole Trayce at any point in their lifetime

    Ditto Micah "Paco" Johnson

    Looks like the green eyed monster isnt confined to Gordon Beckham

    The jealousy on this board is so blatantly obvious
