I do not agree, particularly if the Sox re-sign A.J. Pierzynski or make a deal for someone like Jarrod Saltalamachia of Boston. And the Sox now have an ideal #2 hitter in Jeff Keppinger who is also a good fielder at third base.
The Sox were in contention for all of 2012 until they ran out of gas and hit a brick wall in the last two weeks of the season. And, if his recovery is on track, John Danks will be back in 2013.
The Sox have 6 legitimate starters: John Danks, Chris Sale, Jake Peavy, Gavin Floyd, Jose Quintana and Hector Santiago. With a year under their belt, the Sox bullpen will be better.
The Sox still need to make some moves, it is true, but overall I am optimistic for 2013.
