"Well it's possible [the Red Sox could repeat] but I wouldn't say it's likely at this point. It's a lot of risk involved. I have a lot of faith in [Xander] Bogaerts certainly as a hitter. I think he'll eventually be a good shortstop, not sure it's this year. [Jackie] Bradley's terrific defensively, I'm not sure he's ready to hit at the big-league level. He'll get on base, I'm not sure after that. I think [Jacoby] Ellsbury was a pretty big loss but I'm not ruling them out for anything." -- Jon Heyman, CBSSports.com
