If they're going deep into October the Sox need more than Lester, Daisuke and Wake. Huge question marks with the B Boys-Byrd, Beckett, Bowden, Bucholtz and Bartolo. If Byrd and Beckett come through, the Sox are well placed. As for the pen, they're looking better. Lopez and Masterson have been sollid, as has Pap. Timlin, Okajima and Delcarmen need to be more consistent. With the addition of Bay and Kotsay, the offense, defense and chemistry are better without Manny. It's the pitching that will decide our fate. What are your thoughts?
