The Ted's Army crew has created a series of collectors items to write home about. To preview the 2012 Red Sox season, we have created player cards that you can collect and trade with your friends over a nice tall glass of iced tea. Sit back and enjoy part 1 of 4 of our season preview, the starting rotation.
The entire crew is on the same page with Lester. He will be the ace all season and will be a contender in the Cy Young Award race.
Josh Beckett has many question marks surrounding him and the thumb issue could skew those numbers. He looked pretty damn good this spring, until the thumb wrestling matches with Bailey.
The decision to name Doubront the fourth starter was a shock to us all. Most of the crew predicts a Wakefield-like season for Doubront. I don't think he is ready for this role and will lose his spot in the rotation by June.
Daniel Bard has not delivered this spring and doesn't seem to have what it takes to be a reliable starter, yet. He'll have an average season as a starter and we'll all be calling for a return to the pen.
