Red Sox Opening Day 25 Man Roster Predictions
Now that spring is officially here (I measure seasons based on baseball, not some random tilt of the Earth’s rotational axis), I wanted to post my way too premature prediction on what the Red Sox Opening Day roster will look like.
There are many obvious positions, but as always, there will be some interesting choices to be made for the last couple of spots.
Let’s start with the pitchers:
David Price, Chris Sale and Rick Porcello are guaranteed the top three spots in the rotation (in no particular order) barring any kind of disastrous injury. The last two spots are more interesting. The highest ceiling candidate for them is Eduardo Rodriguez. But if he takes spot #4, who gets left out of the rotation? Last year’s AL all-star Steven Wright? Or the lone representative from the hometown Padres in the NL all-star game, Drew Pomeranz?
