Its a good study with some good points. I guess when I look at the Sox, and I look at the free agents, and I think about 2007, the one word that comes into my head is "quanity." Ironic as it may seem now, the starting pitching depth we thought we had heading into 2006 was supposed to be a real strength for the Sox. It didn't work out that way, but it doesn't mean that pitching depth isn't really, really good (as Philly's study indirectly affirms). So Zito, Schmidt, Matsuzaka? I say yes! And more! As we successfully integrate more salary-controlled players into our 25 man roster (e.g. Youks, Lester, Delcarmen, etc.), I am certainly hoping we leverage the large chunk of cash left in Theo's budget on pitching, durable and talented.

Side note: Remember back in the post-2004 off-season how what Theo really did want to do was sign Pedro to a two year deal? And now at the end of 2006 Pedro needs surgery... Sharp guess.

I think he tore the rotator cuff while trying to pitch through the leg injuries. The Red Sox would never have let him do that.

Yeah, they would have let him tear the rotator cuff before injuring his leg.

The Red Sox would never let any pitcher take the mound if they weren't healthy. Except for Schilling, Wells, Clement...
