I NEVER called myself an expert.
No you haven't, you just imply it, and occassionally try to give people a scouting lesson. As for pitching, Sale, Peavy, Danks, Floyd if they pitch to their capabilities are as good as what Oakland can throw out there if not better, and the Sox bullpen has a ton of guys who can throw hard and be effective. So yes, I can say that about our team this year.
