Break out: Jon Garland

Suprise: Joe Borchard, but in a bad way. I think he'll suprise a lot of people by not being good enough to deservedly take Rowand's starting CF spot at any point in the season. If he gets handed Rowand's starting spot, I think he will put up worse numbers than ARow.

Break out: Dan Wright. 200 innings, 15+ wins, era under 4.00.

Daver, you should make this into a forum feature like the preseason prediction was last year. See who's the closest at the end of the year.

For glory alone, no prizes.

Not a bad idea,I'll consider adding it to the preseason predictions.

Thanx for the suggestion.

I wouldn't call Colon a "surprise". Last year he had 20 wins with a sub-3 ERA.

Surprise: Gordon, Thomas(They should both be pretty good)

Breakout: Olivo, Wright, Garland(Maybe this is just wishful thinking, but if it isn't, expect a pennant)

Crede will be good this year, Borchard NEXt year.

the suprise wasn't supposed to be a good one. a lot of people seem to assume he'll repeat his numers from last season (20 wins and an era under 3). i'm suggesting it'll be more like 15 wins and an era near 4.

I've been saying this for 3 years running,but this year i'm sure to be right.Carlos Lee is about to explode into the upper echelons of great offensive out-fielders.

Hey, welcome aboard. :D:

Hope you are right about all the players listed above. If so the Sox are pennant contenders for sure...

Surprise: Armando Rios--better production off the bench than we may think. Also, Danny Wright--not a breakout performance, but I'm hoping with a full year under his belt, his ERA will be positive.

Breakout: Frank Thomas--return to glory, baby! Jose Valentin--El Conquistador will have a fantastic year offensively.
