Better than last year. Hochevar is gone. Guthrie is gone (hooray for the sox). But they're claiming to be ready to pay for starting pitching. They could make a run at local guy Shawn Marcum or possibly Ryan Dempster as a veteran presence
With Santana being the replacement for Guthrie, that doesn't make me too excited. It seems that even when Santana is going bad, he shuts down the Sox (like he did in late Septemeber).
