"At the moment, assuming that the Red Sox sign Bay or Holliday and using no scientific methods, the 2010 Sox are likely to finish with somewhere in the vicinity of 87-92 wins".
That's from Tony Massarotti, spinning himself into a nonsensical conundrum wrapped in a cognitively dissonant hurricane nestled in a box of illogical tsunamis. (apologies to David Cross).
The 2010 Sox (who follow the 95-win 2009 Sox, and assuming a signing of Bay or Holliday and hypothetical health – no sure thing) will also get a full season from Victor Martinez, a full season from Marco Scutaro, a full season from Daisuke Matsuzaka, and a full season from Clay Buchholz. They've lost Mike Lowell potentially (to be replaced with Beltre?), Takashi Saito, partial seasons from Alex Gonzalez and Billy Wagner.
Mazz isn't kidding about the "using no scientific methods" thing.
