...the Sox would field eight position players with batting averages of .333 or better. Platooning PK & Gload (each currently batting .328) might make it nine.

...Maggs would hit over .400, but not win the batting title.

...a statue of Greg Walker would be erected outside the Cell.

...Garland would go undefeated.

...Schoeneweis would contend for the league lead in strikeouts and keep his ERA under 10.

I think the second part of that actually has a pretty good chance of happening. Maybe I'm just being a little too optimistic.

I also think that spring stats are relatively meaningless. Give you a little clue as to what is going on but players always seem to either tank or turn it up a notch once the season actually starts. The one thing I seem to notice on these boards though is that depending on what player they are arguing for ST stats are either meaningless, or they are used to show how good a player is. So which one is? I just don't like the hypocrisy of putting up a player on pedestal or already condemning them to regular season doom based on their ST performance. Thats why I just don't understand why we can either be so down or excited about some players when we are just working with their ST numbers. I'm going to wait til the season starts before I start condemning every player on the club.

No, I don't plan on condemning anyone until I feel they deserve it, which I don't think anyone does because I don't put much credence in ST stats. I am just saying that is sure seems like everyone else has already condemned a lot of this team based on ST stats, which I think is crazy. Especially when so many people on this site also say that ST stats are meaningless, I don't really understand that.

My apologies, I guess all the severe negativity on this site has made me very defensive. :D:
