2017 RECAP

Record: 11 - 8

Last Season’s Fantasy Highlights

Frankly, there were not many highlights for the 2014 BoSox. If we had to choose we would say the apparently timeless Big Papi. Ortiz blasted 35 homers, knocked in 104 and posted a sweet .355 OBP. Not too shabby for a guy who turns 40 in November.

What Has Changed?

So very much has changed including the return of Hanley Ramirez to play LF, the signing of the Kung Fu Panda Pablo Sandoval to play 3B, the acquisition of Rick Porcello, Wade Miley and Justin Masterson to fortify the rotation and a full year of Cuban import Rusney Castillo to play the outfield everyday.

What to Expect:

Expect the big free agent signings (Hanley and Panda) to struggle early and thus make it highly unlikely they will produce up to the hefty fantasy price tag it will take to roster them (remember, the Colton and the Wolfman Rules of Engagement say to avoid paying full value for big money free agents in new homes). With so many signings and additions, look for either or both of Allen Craig and Shane Victorino to be moved either before the season or early into the 2015 campaign. Smart drafters in deep leagues will snag those guys cheap given their upside should they find playing time.

This Year’s Surprise:

Joe Kelly will finally live up to the hype and produce as someone who consistently averages close to 95 MPH on his fastball should. This will be his third year in the big leagues despite the fact that he is only 26. That usually portends a jump. When you consider the fact that last year’s numbers were affected by an abnormally low strand rate and the fact his walk rate actually decreased while his ground ball rate increased in 2014, you have the makings of a pleasant fantasy surprise and a solid bargain.
