Sox expected Danks to be a contributor,and did not expect Gavin Floyd to have a season ending injury in May.
They added Lindstrom,and Keppinger.
The offense was pretty good last year until the last two weeks of Sept.
Sox had a perfect storm of PK going down, Floyd going down, Keppinger and flowers sucking, and Gordo being hurt for two months.
They needed everything to fall in place,but this team could have contended all season again,and maybe win,but everything that could go wrong ...did.
One of those years. Blow it up,and start over,and get some high draft picks.
