Hench: Power, Pitching Will Put Sox Back on Top

"The Red Sox had 37 starts made in �06 by journeymen who ended the season with a combined 6.91 ERA. Replace 33 of those starts with Dice-K and last year's 11-game gap between the Yanks and third-place Sox has to disappear, right?

Besides, with David Ortiz, Manny Ramirez and J.D. Drew (who raked this spring) in the middle of the order, it's not like Boston will struggle mightily to score runs. Heading into 2007, the Red Sox look like the much more balanced team and, accordingly, will end the Yankees' nine-year hammerlock on the AL East, relegating New York to the wild card."-- 4.1.07, Kevin Hench, FOXSports.com
