I think the Sox now have a punchers chance of contending for a wild card in 2013- need alot of "ifs" to come through- Ramirez, Beckham, Viciedo need to bounce back, John Danks needs to be the 2008 version and need to plug at least catcher or 3rd in the offseason.

Not likely by any stretch- but possible-

Mostly in a "Santa Claus might exist" kind of possible- but Hahn has done enough that I'll go into April/May with the irrational optimism that helped me survive 1978-1980, 1986-1989, 1994-1999, etc.
