Can They Do It?

Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe addresses the question that is on the lips of the entirety of Red Sox Nation: Can they repeat. His answer, which is hardly revelatory: It isn't an easy task to accomplish. The American League is once again stacked. The Red Sox are relying on player development, rather than free agency or trades, in their quest to win back-to-back World Series championships. This is smart from a long-range perspective but requires the development of the young guys to be steady rather than episodic. Still, the Sox seem built to contend for a long time, and that is all any fans can ask from their team.
