What stands as our current memory of the 2011 Red Sox is an epic September collapse, one to be remembered for years to come. The Red Sox have answered right field and some relief pitching, but lost Roy Oswalt, what they thought would be their big acquisition.
But, the Red Sox still have a good lineup. They have a good 3 game rotation, (Jon Lester, Clay Buckholz, Josh Beckett) and a lineup worth chance. But,the main question still has to be answered – will they be able to make a playoff spot? That is what we all want to know. Ryan Sweeney could change the effect, for better or for worse, but I think the only people who could kill the Sox are themselves.
