Let us not buy into the propaganda Hawk is telling us, that we are close to competing due to our starting pitching. I think we need to turn over at least 10 players on the team.
Well the Sox have already turned over several players and they're playing better thanks to the things that will help them rebuild, good young SP and some young bats (Beckham, Garcia, etc.).

So yes, while I agree that this 10-5 run they're on doesn't automatically mean they're going to win 95 games next season, it's not like this is the same collection of lifeless veterans that played so poorly for the first few months of the season, either. There are certainly more than a few reasons to be excited about how they've played recently.
